The official snow season is starting this weekend so why not get on your winter woollies and head to the Victorian high county. Mt Buller is the closest downhill skiing from Melbourne, only 3 hours’ drive north east. Take a look here to plan your visit. http://www.mtbuller.com.au/Winter/
Or, if you are like me and cosying up with friends and family here in Melbourne, why not try the magnificent exhibition that is currently on at the NGV, Terracotta Warriors and Cai Guo-Qiang. As a contemporary artist, Cai draws on the traditional and ancient Chinese culture such as the Terracotta Warriors to produce a dialogue between old and new, where both histories are intertwined. A truly immersive and memorable experience.
For the ultimate in Japanese cosiness, catch a divine 'brunch 'n' beats' at Hibiki in Camberwell. With many vegan and gluten free options, and an ebi prawn burger to die for, you will love the gentle vibe of this petite cafe. And you can top it all off with a magnificent midori green juice...or if you are like me, just go for the divine Industry Beans coffee. Magnificent. Winter warming for the soul.
Whatever rocks your boat this long weekend, stay warm, stay snuggled and stay well. Enjoy.
