As winter hits Melbourne and everyone is scurrying for shelter indoors, Melbourne has a multitude of free things to offer.
1. Free Outside-In Cinema @ State Library of Victoria – This May, the State Library of Victoriais screening free movies. Get cosy and curl up on a deckchair as you enjoy one of the free movie screenings at the State Library, held every second Wednesday starting at 6:30pm and running until 8:30pm.
Head to website and check out all the movies on offer this year. Do not forget to make bookings beforehand. There is no cap on the number of seats you can book. So book for yourself and a loved one or just turn with a bunch of friends and immerse yourself in a free movie while enjoying one of the free lollies, courtesy of State Library.
2. Crown Entertainment Complex - Crown Entertainment Complex with all its gorgeous and lavish décor makes a good place to hand out with friends or just by yourself. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Crown without paying a penny. Go for a walk or just enjoy the free music while browsing the shops and the gambling amenities.
3. Free Salsa Dance Classes – Feeling adventurous but want to stay indoor? Then why not try out one of the free dancing venues. Check out the Salsa Foundation, conveniently located at the heart of Melbourne CBD. Go to their website and make a booking for a free salsa lesson. Lessons are provided every Wednesday and Thursday. There are no limits on lessons so go as many times as you want. Take friends, relatives and colleagues and have a wonderful time while moving your body with the traditional Latin American music.
The friendly instructors will make you feel comfortable as they will guide you through the basic salsa steps. It could get quite packed so do not forget to make a booking and turn up early. Meet new people and acquire a new skill or just have a jolly good time as you master the art of salsa!
