Trivia Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.

Many wineries also set up markets, food vans, masterclasses, buffet breakfasts, dinners, VIP tasting areas and more. Winery Walkabout is the best way to get to know Rutherglen and enjoy the atmosphere with your friends.

There's a reason people have been coming back for Walkabout for over 40 years - find out for yourself. Our exclusive trip sold out last year.

On Sunday morning we will have an early breakfast and jump on the bus to take us to the festival. Our itinerary is as follows:

10 am - Andrew Buller Wine (we will collect our glasses and check in here)

11.30 am - Buller Wines

1 pm - Chambers Rosewood Vineyards

2.30 pm - Rutherglen Estate

On Monday we will have a relaxing start and take the 12.45 train back to Melbourne and are due to arrive back around 5pm.

There is a strong presence of costumes so if you wish to dress up for the festival you are most welcome to. We will work out a theme once we know who’s coming.

The festival booked out in record time last year so get in early.
