If bearded, top knotted hipster men and women in mis-matching socks and berets are your thing, grow your armpit hair long and visit this place. Sometimes they have great exhibitions, but I am mostly put off by their "clientele". It has become a congregation spot...More

ACMI was a great time. Spent around 2 hours there and every second was great. We went while the Alice in wonderland exhibition was on and it was amazing

Went to ACMI on a Friday night for Honcho Disko. Excellent night of dancing, socialising and viewing the Alice in Wonderland exhibition.

I only went in the Alice in Wonderland exhibition which was wonderfully interactive - I did the Mad Hatter's Tea Party twice as it was so unusual.

The free exhibition was full on with film clips, displays and interactive games. There was a wonderful animated exhibit I had to watch a few times because it was such fun: a turntable with small moulded characters in succeeding poses rotated while strobe lights came...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
