Check out my review of The Plough Hotel in Footscray here.

Quick. If you love your live theatre and a bit of comedy get to "That Time Everything Went Well and We Were Totally Fine" at  WIT. For more info and booking go here.

This is in Footscray and performed at the Bluestone Church Arts Space.

It's the last week so hurry.  I've been and it a great comedy.  It's set in Melbourne and is very contemporary but most importantly FUN!

Support local theatre and the performance arts and your heart too.  It's a great laugh.

Get to the Diwali Wyndham festival tomorrow, yes, that's Saturday 9 November.

Wyndham Diwali has dual stages, for youth and the general public showcasing the exuberance of the Indian Festival Diwali and the multicultural flavours of the festival on both platforms.
There are lots of handicrafts, rides, sports and more importantly, exhilarating performances for your enjoyment and entertainment.  Fun for all the family.
Enjoy the wide variety of cuisine from different communities leaving the choice to you. End the day with a fireworks spectacular.


I am always looking for things to do in the weekends and I'm trying to break down that East West barrier that continues to exist in Melbourne.  

This website is dedicated to showing what's on offer to local Westies and everyone else who likes to get out and about in the weekends and are often at loose ends.  If you are like me, I'm forever trying to find and think of new things to see and do.

This website can't be everything to everybody but it's going to try and cover:

  • Arts and culture;
  • Family events;
  • Festivals;
  • Markets;
  • Cafe and restaurant reviews;
  • A bit of shopping; and 
  • The great outdoors.
Wow, that's a mouthful.

There's a lot of things to do in the west that you may have never heard of.  Hopefully this is the place for you.
