Free in Melbourne

I’m going to be keeping an eye out for free and cheap cool things to do in Melbourne – whether it’s arts events, classes, or concerts. I’ll tag these posts ‘free in Melbourne’

So far I’ve learned that Port Phillip council offers a range of free classes (including cheese making!), the awesome City Library in Flinders Lane has a series of free gigs coming up and the Melbourne Library Service offers a book club at a few of their libraries where you borrow the books from the library rather than buying them – clever!

I was vaguely disappointed by the Melbourne City Council’s “That’s Melbourne” website. So where do you find out what cool free and cheap things are on in Melbourne?

    Bugger, that cheesemaking workshop is the day after my birthday and I might be a little under the weather 😉

    The Hive (thehive.org.au) will start up again in February for the 2009 season with some interesting speakers, and hopefully Yabble (yabble.com.au) has some interesting places to check out 🙂
