City of Melbourne and Vic Government Are Giving Away Thousands of Free Tickets and Experiences
The FOMO Freebies scheme is giving away tickets to 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child', NGV passes, overnight hotel staycations and more.
With Victoria's latest snap lockdown finally over and restrictions continuing to ease, you probably don't need much of an excuse to venture out and enjoy what Melbourne has to offer. But here's one anyway — the City of Melbourne and the Victorian Government have teamed up to offer a swag of giveaways, aimed at enticing locals to get back out and about post-lockdown.
The new FOMO Freebies program is set to run from today, Monday, June 21, until Sunday, July 18, giving people the chance to live out some truly Melbourne experiences for free. A stack of retail, accommodation, tourism and entertainment giveaways will be up for grabs over the four weeks, as part of the $200 million Melbourne City Reactivation Fund.
Want to indulge in 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 Part 1 and Part 2 of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, or one of 200 tickets to Frozen The Musical.
You've also got a shot at scoring double passes to the NGV's Friday Night series, to a trip aboard the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, 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, O'Brien Ice House double passes and tickets to Docklands' immersive playground Imaginaria are some of the other goodies you might like to pop on your radar.
To get amongst the FOMO Freebies action, you will need to stay tuned to the What's On Melbourne social media accounts. That's where details of each of the giveaways will be announced in advance over the next month.
