Moomba again thrilled Melbourne crowds over the Labour Day long weekend from March 9-12 at Birrarung Marr and Alexandra Gardens.
Running for the 64th consecutive year, the annual festival runs a three-day jam-packed program that boasts free events for families, including games, water sports, carnival rides and food trucks, with highlights such as the colourful Moomba Parade and the wacky Birdman Rally.
It was estimated that over one million people have visited Moomba Festival this year, making it one of Melbourne’s busiest festivals, showcasing local arts, entertainment, music and sports.
