Step down the subway stairs at Flinders street or the Graffiti stairs at Degraves street and enter the vintage 1950’s pink tiled arcade, featuring our free exhibit that touches on the COVID-19 Pandemic experience.



Rainbow Walk is a colourful exhibition, that explores the challenges we’ve faced and builds hope for the future.

Come and visit!

Where: Campbell Arcade in Melbourne’s CBD

When: Open Monday – Saturday 7am – 7pm, until July 31.

Mrs Claus’ Lolly Milkshake Recipes!

It’s Christmas in July and Mrs Claus has a surprise for you! She has given us her secret Lolly Milkshake recipes from Christmasland, so you can enjoy some sweet Christmas magic at home.

Our absolute favourites are the So Soft Mashmallow shake and the Sour Straps Shake. You can choose any milk and ice cream and whip these up in a flash at home. Each flavour is great on its own but mixing them is even more fun! We recommend Sour Straps and Jelly Beans for a super sweet treat.

Ice Cream (Vanilla Dairy, Almond, Coconut or Soy is recommended)

On a serious note, hopefully, it won’t be too much longer until we can bring you another Sugar Republic event. Until then, we hope this helps satisfy your sugar craving.


A Message From Our Director

Firstly, on behalf of the small team behind Sugar Republic, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last almost 2 years (Yes it’s our second Birthday next month!) It’s been a wild ride and we were so excited to invite you to our latest Sugar Republic event, however, due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we must wait. During these unprecedented times, we have decided to do our best to bring that Sugar Republic magic to you. Times are tough worldwide and we are hoping to break the cycle of fear and bring a little joy to each and every one of you.

While we are unable to hold a Sugar Republic event at the moment, we are using our Social Media platforms Instagram and Facebook to bring Sugar Republic to you! We will continue to post fun ideas for things to do whilst in isolation, hold competitions, challenges and take part in some sweet silliness. And we’ve also made some of the most popular rooms from our past events available as Zoom virtual backgrounds for free.

We have also been working with our local community through donations of confectionery worth over $20,000 that are being distributed in care packages to families and front line workers.

We hope that you will join us and get involved in some Sugar Republic fun at home until we can host another event. When this happens you’ll be the first to know!

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in person soon.

Much Love,

Allison Jones

Creative Director
