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!

Yarra River, Birrarung Marr
The Birdman Rally with competitors plunging into the Yarra River for charity.
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.

A Melbourne staple, take your place on the sidelines as the vitality and energy of Moomba is brought to life through the spectacular Moomba Parade. Starting near the Shrine of Remembrance and finishing near Linlithgow Avenue, the lively procession brings a flurry of colour and movement to Melbourne's St Kilda Road.
Community designed floats are sure to dazzle in the spotlight this year and will be accompanied by droves of talented performance troupes, professional and amateur dance groups, as well as school participants.
