We've all been spending a lot more time in our front, back and side yards this past year. And now that we've explored every street, every park, every nook and every gosh darn cranny within a five-kilometre radius of our home address, it's time to venture a little further afield to discover even more in Port Phillip.

There's something for everyone at this waterfront wedge of Melbourne, so don't let the cold stop you from having a good time. Rug up and head to Ripponlea's Burnett Gray Gardens and Acland Plaza to check out glowing light installations after dark. They'll be lighting up your Friday–Sunday nights from 4pm throughout June and July.

Feel like tapping into your inner child? Consider paying Luna Park a visit and tappity-tap your way to both your childhood and a hole-in-one at its new mini golf course. If arts and culture is more your thing, there are plenty of galleries and theatres showcasing work that will capture your attention. Hit up Red Stitch Actors' Theatre to catch new Australian plays performed in an intimate setting just behind Chapel Street. Or, invest in some art from South Melbourne's Australian Tapestry Workshop or at St Kilda's Space2b Social Design — a social enterprise helping newly arrived migrants, refugees and asylum seekers become financially independent.

You can explore the great outdoors with self-guided walking trails like the mobile-friendly Foreshore Trail and Solar System Trail, too.

Head to Port Phillip this winter to discover something new. For more information on what's happening in the area, visit the website.
