Be a part of Micro Adventures in Melbourne: a two months of night-time urban adventures to delight and surprise visitors with experiences ‘Only in the City’!

How to get involved:

1. Become a City precinct member:

To be involved in the Melbourne Micro Adventures Program you must join City Precinct and pay an annual membership fee of $50. As a welcome gift we will give you a $100 voucher to enjoy at any member business.

City Precinct is the traders association supporting a community of small businesses across postcode 3000.

Details of how to become a member here.

2. Email us an activation/event concept:

This program is funded by the City of Melbourne in conjunction with the Victorian Government in order to activate the city in the evenings throughout the winter months.

We are not asking you to do something that is too intense or time-consuming; however it does have to be ‘special’ as we cannot fund ‘business as usual’. We believe this will drive additional foot traffic to your business and expose a different demographic to your product/services.
