Melbourne Design Week is back for its third consecutive season, and we could hardly be more excited. Presented by the National Gallery of Victoria in partnership with Creative Victoria, this year's event is the biggest yet — when it takes over the city from March 14–2, it'll facilitate more than 200 talks, tours, workshops and exhibitions. The best designers from around Australia and beyond will explore design and how it can best be employed by Melbourne in the future.

There are plenty of highlights to choose from, from boat tours of the Yarra and immersive installations at NGV Australia to keynote addresses from an array of local and international guest speakers. Expect to hear from prominent Turkish-born digital media artist Refik Anadol and British design and architecture critic Oliver Wainwright, and take a look through a timber portal designed by John Wardle Architects. There's also a documentary stream for movie lovers, and the return of the Melbourne Art Book Fair for book worms.

Best of all, the program is packed full of free events, so you don't have to break the bank to attend a couple.
