Moomba Parade


11am, Monday 9 March 2015

The parade runs northbound (towards the city) on St Kilda Road (on the park side of the road | East) between Dorcas St and Linlithgow Avenue. Map

Top tip: the procession route is flanked by barracades so it will be easy to know where to position yourselves. Make your way into the city (tram or train) and walk over Princes Bridge. Choose which side to view from and proceed down that side until you reach the best position.

Birdman Rally


Noon, Sunday, 8th March 2015
Yarra River, Birrarung Marr

The antics are back with the hilarious Birdman Rally, where contestants aim to fly across the river by leaping off a four-metre platform with wings attached to their costumes.. all for a good cause.

It's big, colourful and fun. And it's all free.

Moomba Fireworks


9.30pm

Fireworks on the Yarra | Saturday - Monday between Princes Bridge and Swan St Bridge.. whoah!

For full program details closer to the date or visit the Moomba website (below).
