What's On this Week | 25 - 31 August 2015

Tuesday 25th August 2015 to Monday 31st August 2015

This week we celebrate the old dames birthday, which old dame? Melbourne of course.

180 years since the wooden schooner, Enterprize sailed up the Yarra River and docked at Enterprize Wharf near Queen's Bridge on Sunday, August 30, 1835.

I'll spare you a history lesson about the Foundation of Melbourne but invite every Melburnian to join in and celebrate Melbourne Day this Sunday.

Happy Birthday Melbourne
