The Australian Centre for the Moving Image is a smorgasbord of media items. Free entry and has something for everyone--young, old and middle-aged. Modern cinematic images mixed with historical data. Educational, informative and entertaining.

A variety of iconic films available in several theatres within the same building. Other exhibits on the growth of TV and movie industry in Australia. If you have the interest, you could easily enjoy half a day here.

This was way better than I imagined. I like Wallace and Grommet, Shawn the Sheep etc, but to see the amount of work and dedication to detail these artists and creators of the shows go to is mind-blowing. Great visual display for adults and kids...More

Visited the Aardman / Wallace and Gromit exhibition, and it was mind-blowing. They displayed each stage of the production and I was really fascinated by all the work needed to make each animation comes alive. Great experience and exposure!

Went to ACMI to see the Wallace and Gromit exhibition - what a treat! Fascination to see how Aardman make these wonderful characters and all the others like Creature Comforts (I'm a big fan). Spent 3-4 hours there and so worth it.

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
