Every Labour Day long weekend, Moomba brings Melburnians together to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.
A celebrated part of the Melbourne events calendar for 60 years, Moomba will be back with an exciting program of events and family entertainment, making Melbourne the ideal place to be for the Labour Day long weekend.
Held over four days, the festival attracts more than one million visitors to the sun-soaked banks of the Yarra to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.
Love Melbourne, Love Moomba!

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.

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