MPavilion is open every day—rain, hail or shine—except Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 December and Tuesday 1 January, and on Monday 31 December we will close at 2pm.


In 2018, the MPavilion Kiosk returns with the best in Melbourne’s summer foodie offerings—from a cup of the best coffee in town thanks to our friends at Three Thousand Thieves, to tasty locally-made treats, themed picnic items and delicious boozy beverages. Yes, you can purchase from a range of boutique alcoholic drinks from Shadowfax, Four Pillars and Two Birds Brewing (please bring photo ID—no BYO alcohol allowed), so pack a blanket and come spend some time with us in the gardens!  

The Kiosk is open daily during the MPavilion 2018 season.


MPavilion is located in the Queen Victoria Gardens, opposite the Arts Centre on St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
