Winter in Melbourne was once a cold and alienating time of staying put and hibernating. If you tucked yourself up for long enough Jack Frost and Co would simply just go away. But these days there is no reason to hide. Our city is rich with things to do in winter. All you have to do is be a little brave and step outside.
A great example of this is the QV Hotham Lodge, in the middle of QV in Melbourne.
Inside this makeshift lodge are soft padded armchairs, log fires and alpine scenes. Real snow, or should we say manufactured snow swirls around outside. There are even frosty windows where you can leave messages for your friends.
