Thinking of hibernating this winter? Think again — the City of Melbourne and the Victorian Government have teamed up to offer a swag of freebies and giveaways over the coming weeks, aimed at enticing locals to get back out and about post-lockdown. The new FOMO Freebies program will run from June 21–July 18, with a stack of retail, accommodation, tourism and entertainment giveaways up for grabs.

Craving an urban escape? The Westin Melbourne and The Sofitel Melbourne on Collins are each offering 200 overnight staycations. Keen to catch a show? Wrangle one of 200 tickets to Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, or one of 200 tickets to Frozen The Musical. You could also score double passes to the NGV's Friday Night series, to see the fish at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium and to explore the city on Discovera's Hidden Bars & History Tour. Queen Victoria Market vouchers and tickets to Docklands' immersive playground Imaginaria are a few of the other goodies available.

To get involved, stay tuned to the What's On Melbourne Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts. That's where details of each of the giveaways will be announced in advance over the next month.
