What's On: Melbourne in November

Here is what's on in Melbourne in November.

November in Melbourne is the height of the spring racing season. After that the major event calendar of Melbourne is relatively quiet.

But life goes on in the nooks and crannies of Melbourne subcultures.

There are still freezing days, raincoats and plenty of wind. And there are the summer days, t-shirts and dresses...

It is time to get organized for Chrismas shopping - and Melbourne is definitely the place to get original items, from fashion and accessories to art and craft bits and pieces that are made to enjoy. A great place to start is one of Melbourne's art and craft markets.

Hats, fashion, glamour and horses. The legendary Melbourne Cup, is held on the first Tuesday in November. It is an opportunity for the fashionista the show off the lates frogs and fascinators, and an opportunity for a long weekend for many as it is a public holiday in Victoria.
