Moomba Festival returns to Melbourne this Labour Day weekend! For those who aren’t familiar with it, Moomba is Australia’s largest community festival and features a carnival, fireworks, water sports, live shows and a range of family-friendly events.
Set on the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River, Moomba has a whole bunch of activities available for absolutely everyone.
Here are some of the events happening:
SUNDAY 12 MARCH, 11AM: The hilariously spectacular Birdman Rally is a long-held Moomba tradition that sees courageous competitors hurtle themselves over the Yarra all in the name of charity.
MONDAY 13 MARCH, 10.45AM:
Melburnians’ beloved Moomba Parade returns with larger-than-life floats, dance troupes, community performance groups and a special appearance from our Moomba Monarchs!
