New South Wales

Stay at the Ovolo at Woolloomooloo Bay, where you can dine at Alibi Bar + Kitchen for plant based cuisine + quirky, bold cocktails. Go for mid week drinks + vegan tacos, or opt for the super elegant vegan high tea on weekends.

Pack your bags: Meet the architectural mood of Alibi Bar with a statement bag that's equally bold + distinctive. The Dumpling has a modern silhouette + dramatic drawcord that opens to reveal a surprisingly roomy + practical interior, plus its as picture worthy as those luscious interiors.

Renowned artist Rone offers up a new art experience this summer, with ‘Time’ installed in the third floor wing of quintessential Melbourne location, Flinders Street Station. Time is described as a ‘nostalgic love letter to mid century Melbourne' and runs until April 2023.

Stay with the theme of Melbourne icons by heading to old favourite Transformer in Fitzroy for their plant focused small plates, then leave room for dessert at Girls + Boys

Pack your bags: Keep the nostalgic feel going with the Reader Satchel. Its vintage luggage-inspired handle brings a distinctive look as well as versatile carry options.

Move from contemporary art to old school burgers + fries reinvented at GrassFed - an entirely plant based menu, grounded in a philosophy of 'only the best for the plate and the planet.' Yum. Finally, finish the day at The Inchcolm, a glamorous 1920s boutique beauty with Martini Hour held between 5.30-6.30 daily.
