2016 Grand Final Long Weekend


Did you know Melbourne is internationally known as the sporting capital of the world? It might seem like an exaggeration, but think about it… This weekend we see our city transformed into a flowing swarm of red, blue and white. Streets are filled; restaurants and bars sprawl onto the footpath. Roars of joy and gasps of suspense echo out of venues, whilst the city momentarily stops to witness a group of burly men kick a red ball through some tall white posts.


Fathers Day Car Show

This Sunday we have put on a great show for the whole family. Celebrate father’s day this year with dad in Acland Village. Melbourne’s best show cars such as street machines, hot rods, elite cars, muscle cars, custom bikes, original rides and American classics. All on display.

This is an annual event and has been a massive success over the years.

Tapas, the best in Melbourne.

Food is more than sustenance; it is more than a staple we need to help us conquer the challenges of the day. Food is an experience, a time that we set aside each day to sit, taste, talk and enjoy.

‘Tapas’, a Spanish dining where you eat a number of appetizers or snacks. Spaniards love to dine on these multiple small dishes consisting of anything from olives and cheese to meatballs and chorizo.‘Tapas’ has something for everyone and you also get to try lots of different flavours and ingredients.

Favourite quick eats on Acland Street


No longer do you have to deal with a sloppy burger and soggy chips if you need a quick bite to eat. Here are some of the best places Acland Village has on offer for a quick snack or a tasty meal. The fast food game has changed, see for yourself!


GAMI Chicken & Beer -

Take a ride down memory lane.

Luna Park is still one of the most recognisable landmarks that we have in Melbourne today. Its doors opened over a century ago and it’s still going strong, giving countless people fun and excitement throughout the year.

St Kilda's history ain't no mystery!

The history of St Kilda’s history is very interesting, it is an area that has been visited, explored, developed, and experienced by many.

In 1842 St Kilda was surveyed and James Ross Lawrence, a master of a cruiser yacht called the Lady of St Kilda, “purchased” the first block. Three unmade roads bound his block; he named these Fitzroy St, The Esplanade and Acland St.

Within a few years, St Kilda continued to develop and became ‘the place to be’ for wealthy settlers. Sadly, the indigenous peoples were driven out to surrounding areas.
