Things to do this Weekend in Melbourne

1. Pick Up a Copy of Our Latest Mag

Our latest issue of Sitchu Living Magazine is now available in print and online! We take a tour of coastal getaway The Jetty House and explore the heritage charm of Samford. Read the magazine online or head into your local Belle Property or Hockingstuart office to pick up a copy.⁠

2. Book a Local Getaway

Had to cancel a trip to Europe? Don't worry we've rounded up the most unique Airbnb stays in Australia that will make you forget all about it. From stunning beach houses to intimate cottages tucked away in remote areas of Australia, there are so many gorgeous homes to choose from. 

3. Get Your Tastebuds Around a Delicious, Soul-warming Ramen

Hot, soupy and soul-reviving – there’s nothing quite like a steaming bowl of ramen to warm you up. One of our favourite places to go is Shujinko, a 24-hour ramen bar that’s straight out of the back alleys of Tokyo. ⁠At any hour of the day, you can sink into a bowl of their soul-reviving miso or tonkotsu ramen.⁠

4. Try a New Lunch Spot

Acre Brickworks is a ‘farm-to-table’ venue that grows over 60 types of produce over 2500 square metres of land. They funnel into the rustic farmhouse-style restaurant’s minimal waste, produce-first menu of modern Australian cuisine, well-matched with an all-Victorian wine list.

5. Get Creative With Your Cheeseboard

Having people over this weekend? Why not impress them with the ultimate grazing board? This marinated tomato and grilled veggie cheese board is guaranteed to be a hit.

6. Book a Romantic Rendezvous

Already planning your next romantic getaway? We've rounded up the most romantic weekend trips in Victoria. Lucky for us, Victoria is spoilt with amorous locations that are just a short drive from Melbourne.⁠

7. Cream Cake, anyone?

Have you tried one of these cream cakes from Zero Mode?⁠ With flavours including chocolate, matcha, fruit and bubble tea!

8. Pamper Yourself

Need some relaxation in your life? With over 20 bath experiences including plunge pools, jet pools and massaging showers, Peninsula Hot Springs is the perfect setting to relax and reconnect. They are open now with new guidelines in place and bookings are essential.⁠

9. Pick Up Some Sweet Treats

We can't take our eyes off these triple chocolate-coated Madeleines by What Jean Baked.⁠ If you have a quick scroll through their Instagram you'll find plenty of delicious cakes and pastries that you'll want to take a bite of immediately!⁠ From matcha mochi bites to salted caramel fudge-brownies with roasted walnuts, there's something for everyone.

10. Let us know about your favourite local business

We’re looking for local businesses navigating their way out of the restrictions who need some support during this time. Share with us some of your favourite local businesses by tagging them in this post!
