Each year the iconic Moomba festival attracts enthusiastic crowds of all ages to the banks of the Yarra to enjoy its bustling carnival and family-friendly program of free entertainment, events and activities over the Labour Day long weekend. It is now recognised as Australia’s largest community festival running from 6-9 March.
This year Moomba invites you to engage your curiosity. Follow a trail of Moomba facts to learn more about this uniquely Melbourne event with its the five festival precincts – Main Arena, Kids Zone, Skate Park, River and for the first time, The Green.
