Whether you're a sports fan, filmophile or just want to sample some of the city's famous food and drink, our guide to Melbourne's top annual events is your ticket to a cracking trip.

Melbourne fashion week

Taking place at the start of every September, Melbourne Fashion Week is where you can get a sneak peek of new season trends, as well as the chance to mingle with models, designers and celebrities behind the scenes.

If you're looking to add a star-studded event to your social calendar, there's no better time to be in town.

AFL grand final

More sports fan than fashionista? Plan your visit at the end of September, when the AFL Grand Final sees the league's top two teams clash at the legendary MCG.

You'll need to snag tickets before the final teams are announced, but you're guaranteed an unforgettable game even if your team doesn't make it to the top of the ladder.

Melbourne cup carnival

If you're looking for the best of both worlds, November's Melbourne Cup Carnival is where fashion and sport combine. A well-known stomping ground for the city's socialites, this series of race days is just as much about style as it is about stallions.
