More than just a series of concerts, you can also enjoy events such as film screenings, workshops and even a 'Soul Food Lunch' that fuses great music and tasty jazzy foods.
Head along to be a part of the thriving buzz of Federation Square when free jazz performances are held and spontaneous dance parties erupt in the crowd, or embark upon a 'Soundwalk' walking tour of the city.
Venues span the entirety of the city, so you might want to book your holiday accommodation in a central location so you easily travel from one gig to another. Check out Mantra 100 Exhibition located right in the heart of Melbourne, close to all the city's best-loved attractions.
Choose from a one- or two-bedroom furnished apartment with views of the Melbourne cityscape. Rest assured that after a night out swinging your hips to the rhythm of jazz, you'll have a more than comfortable place to relax.
