Upcoming event: QV Tropical Retreat [4 – 27June]

QV Melbourne will be opening the QV Tropical Retreat, a bespoke beach-themed resort sanctuary; the perfect way to escape the icy Melbourne chill. The premium shopping and dining destination will also host a range of tropical themed events in the warm pop-up oasis.

Resembling an island-style beach resort, the QV Tropical Retreat will be a relaxing, warming refuge from the cold. Approaching the tropical bure, feel welcomed by towering palms and a tiki thatched roofline with lush green foliage. Stepping into the retreat, be immediately transported to a tropical oasis by the thick scent of coconut, the warm and humid temperature and the visual explosion of colour and texture. Complete with hanging vines, a mini island, bright tropical florals and even a sandy beach, escape the winter blues and unwind beneath the tropical canopy in a hammock, or sip refreshing juice mocktails with friends amongst verdant tropical flower displays.

Each day will bring new a new activity to the space to keep visitors entertained. On weekends, the QV Tropical Retreat will play host to a number of exotic animals, including a special appearance by ABC TV’s Wild Action warrior Chris Humfrey. Expert CBD florists, Flower Temple will hold tropical terrarium classes each Wednesday where participants can take a little piece of the tropics home.

The site will also host an array of resort style activities such as cocktail classes from Red Spice Road QV, fruit carving, hula competitions and free manicures.

Free lunches from QV’s tantalising food retailers will be given away each weekday, and one lucky visitor will win a luxurious Queensland holiday for two.
