Calling All Lolly Lovers – Sugar Republic is Returning to Melbourne in 2019


This is the closest you’ll ever get to a real-life Willy Wonka factory.

Following a sell-out season in 2018, dessert and lolly pop-up museum Sugar Republic is returning to Melbourne in February 2019 with all-new installations.

While last year's visitors lost themselves inside a giant gumball machine and walked throuh a forest of inflatable banana lollies, new attendees can instead walk through a box of chocolates, take a seat instead a house made of cookies or play a game of tic tac toe with licorice.

There's also a milk bar designed by Melbourne-based artist Callum Preston, and some of the favourite exhibitions from last year have made the cut again, including a giant birthday cake made for jumping out of.

And if the sensory overload wasn’t already enough, you can really please your sweet tooth by indulging in some of the free lollies and ice-cream on offer or stocking up on retro lollies at the on-site store.

The exhibition, on the sixth floor of Myer Melbourne, is on between 10 February until 20 May. Sydney based? There's a sister event going on in the Harbour City at the same time.

Tickets are only available through the website so book ahead to make sure you dessert dreams are realised.

Sweet as.
