The Official Queens Birthday is celebrated on the second Monday in June and this long weekend is the perfect opportunity to attend a Fair Dinkum(real) Aussie Rules Footie match!
The 2 major rival teams that have traditionally played on this Monday are Collingwood and Melbourne.
The game is played at the MCG and if you do get the opportunity to see the match it is well worth it, even though the Melbourne weather in June can mean that it can get quite cold, in fact quite freezing!

Whatever you do make sure that you have some warm clothes to wear as the temperatures can drop very low very suddenly.
