Experience the best Melbourne has to offer!

Stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens, unpack your picnic or have gourmet food delivered to you as you settle in to watch the sunset and the fun begin. The jewel in the Shakespeare comedy crown is set to take you on a riotous ride through the interwoven world of Lovers, Fairies and Fools. See the gardens lit up at night, glowing and sparkling beyond your wildest imaginings while you reel with laughter as you witness the comedy that is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
