4 Things To Do In Melbourne In September

You know the drill. There is plenty to do in Melbourne in September, because there is plenty to do in Melbourne full stop.

Part of being the world’s most liveable city (seven years in a row) is having “culture”. Part of having culture is having things to do. And September has in no way dropped the ball.

We look at 4 things to do in Melbourne in September. Things that you might’ve missed. We suggest bringing in the first month of spring with beer by the barrelful, gallons of gin, a very sweet and ab-ruining hoard of cakes, doughnuts and waffles (who ate al the pies?) and some electrified classical music.

Flour Market

It’s a bake-off, people. It’s a bake-off. Flour Market brings together emerging, artisan flour artists from the underground baking scene and puts them against each other in the sweetest damn competition you’ll ever see. This year’s line-includes Luxbite, Cherry Cakes, Cobb Lane, The Pie Shop, au79, and Bistro Morgan. Go hungry.

Flour Market will take place September 10 at Collingwood Town Hall.

Pop-up Gin Bar

The first day of spring racing now offers a pop-up Tanqueray gin bar with live music. You don’t really need to know more that that… only that if you’re an AFL club member, you get free entry to the races with membership card.

Pop-up gin Bar will take place September 2 at Caulfield Racecourse for Memsie Stakes Day.

Play On

Classical goes head to head with electronic music in what can only be described as the Mayweather Vs MacGregor of music…over the top? I think not. Play On aims to make Classical more accessible by giving it a spice of electronica. Similar events have had massive success in Berlin and New York.

Play On will take place September 1, 8 and 15 at the Collingwood Arts Precinct.


Beer, bratwurst, sauerkraut and lederhosen – Oktoberfest is A-OK in our books. Danke!

Royal Melbourne Oktoberfest will take place September 23 at Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton.
