VPL City Getaway

Published: Tuesday 28 November 2023

As 2023 comes to a close, the last of our three major connection events, the City Getaway, was held last week, culminating at the MCG Christmas Luncheon.

Police Legatees enjoyed plenty of good fun and fellowship over three days in downtown Melbourne, dining out at the fantastic Longrain restaurant, exploring Melbourne’s iconic laneways and arcades, visiting multicultural markets, enjoying Melbourne Ghost and Melbourne True Crime evening walking tours, and joining in with hundreds of other police legatees at the MCG Members’ Dining Room for the annual VPL Christmas Lunch.

To cap off on yet another fantastic City Getaway, the MCG Lunch was followed by a night theatre to see Cameron Mackintosh's acclaimed new production of Boublil and Schönberg's award-winning musical ‘Miss Saigon’. From all reports this year’s City Getaway was a massive hit with the rekindling of friendships and the making of new ones.
