Melbourne is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city.
Why not arrive a day early and explore the city’s quirky and cosmopolitan aspects with astrologers Stephanie Johnson and Nicky Allison.

Leaving from International House at 11 am and 2 pm on Thursday, January 18 you can explore some of the better and lesser known areas of the city. Catch one of Melbourne’s colourful trams to Federation Square. Walk down the famous bluestone Hosier Lane laneway and admire the street art that has made the Melbourne urban art scene known across the globe. Visit the Gânache Chocolate lounge on fashionable Collins St. Situated between Elizabeth and Swanston Streets, the chocolate lounge is the ideal place for a sweet treat and finish your tour with a heritage shopping or cafe experience in the Block Arcade. We will also slip into Regent Arcade ‐ it’s just near the Block Arcade and features the Cronus statue. No charge.

Melbourne is awash with a myriad of wonderful atmospheric pubs, bars tucked away round a corner, and inns where the locals gather.

On Friday night Jessica Adams is your guide for a fun night of touring some of Melbourne’s most interesting bars. Imagine the fun with a flock of astrologers, or is it a gaggle, a cast, a troupe, a horde, a herd or a mob. After a few bars it won’t matter – join Jessica and the constellation of astrologers after dinner on Friday for more myths and merriment.

Brian Clark takes a stroll to the University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne was recently ranked number 1 amongst the other universities in Australia and 33 in the world.

Join Brian on Sunday for a lunchtime stroll to the Uni – as he says it was his home away from home for many years and so we will duck into the Potter Museum, the Medical library’s rare collection room, find some neo‐classical sculpture rubble and maybe find that statue copy of Poseidon based on Zeus of Artemision, always was a mystery.

Bring a sandwich and some treats to tide you over the lunch break.

Saturday Night at the Arts Centre

Traditionally, on the Saturday evening of our conferences, the convenors like to highlight some of their city’s best features, as well as provide a venue for our delegates to enjoy each other’s company, renew friendships and make new ones. Our gala Melbourne Experience on Saturday Evening at the Arts Centre, next to Southbank, promises to be a night to remember – hors d’oeuvres, a private balcony, drinks, dinner, conversation, dancing. Tickets are limited.
