Yarraville Village, located between Ballarat and Anderson Streets, can be found amongst a cluster of shops, cafes and restaurants near the Yarraville train station.

The Yarraville Festival itself offers plenty to do and features everything from market stalls to live music.

Take a walk around the market stalls and pick up something for yourself or that special someone. With soaps, face painting, corn on the cob, art pieces and more collectibles than you can count, there’s something for everyone for everyone down at the market. Stalls will be up and running from 9.00am.

Then there’s the inaugural Flik Fest at the Sun Theatre, where you can watch a film or two exploring the theme, “Made By Me” which focuses on the small and local manufacturers in Yarraville. Films start running from 12.00pm.

And Poetry at The Bank, located in Ballarat Street will feature several of Melbourne’s most popular poets. It’s the first time this program has been scheduled where visitors will be able to relish the works of poets Amanda Anastasi, Steve Smart, Freeman Trebilock, Rochelle D’Silva and Marilyn King. Readings begin at 1.00pm.

The Yarraville Festival is only a short train ride from Melbourne’s city so grab some friends and get along to something a bit different this Sunday.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
