If you move to Melbourne, you’ll be entertained all year round with our unique events and great nights out.
Melbourne has a lively nightlife with hundreds of nightclubs, bars and pubs across the city and regional centres. Tourists and locals alike love the many small bars hidden in and around the city centre.
Our city is famous for its live music scene. Many pubs and cafes are open late throughout the week, hosting live bands and DJs.
Melbourne nightclubs, bars and pubs are generally licensed to serve alcohol, and many food trucks and kiosks sell food late into the night on weekends.
Go to the Visit Victoria website or Time Out Melbourne website for more information on things to do in Melbourne.
The legal Australian drinking age is 18. You must provide photo identification as proof of your age to buy alcohol and to enter licensed venues such as nightclubs, pubs and gambling areas.
Held in April every year, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival attracts the biggest international names in comedy. Local and international comedians also perform live throughout the year.
