Winter is when Melbourne comes alive with culture, art exhibitions and plenty of cosy eateries to dine at. 

Here's what's on this month.

1. French impressionist Edgar Degas' exhibition at National Gallery of Victoria brings more than 200 works from dozens of collections worldwide. A must see for any art fan. Buy tickets here. 24 June - 18 September 2016.

2. Two-time Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton's interpretation of Oscar Wilde’s 19th century classic The Nightingale and the Rose is showcasing at ACMI from 21st June. Featuring a selection of Barton's paintings, a screening of the Nightingale film, a collaboration between Barton and filmmaker Brendan Fletcher, plus handmade props from the production archive. FREE. 21 June - 11 September 2016.

3. Enjoy a mid-week outing at the Queen Vic Winter Night Market. Sip on mulled wine while deciding what to eat from the 30+ food stalls or browse the designer stalls while making room for seconds. Until 31 August 2016.

4. If you're a dance enthusiast like me you must see Netherlands Dance Theatre perform. Known for their innovative contemporary dance they are visiting Melbourne for 4 nights in June. Buy tickets here. 22 - 25 August 2016.

5. Want to eat somewhere new? Sick of the same old brunch menu? West of Kin is the answer. Located in the west in Braybrook, this Asian fusion bar and eatery is the place to go for out-of-this-world delicious and authentic Asian food. Their brunch menu is the most exciting menu I've seen recently with asian favourites including congee, shredded duck noodles and warm sago pudding. I've been for both brunch and dinner and the food is incredible. I will share my experience at West of Kin soon on the blog so stay tuned, but for now make a booking for your next date night, it's worth it. 17 Lacy St, Braybrook.

What else are you up to this month?
