RACV Australia Day Festival

The RACV Australia Day Festival in Kings Domain Gardens is one of Melbourne’s favourite celebrations. This much-loved family event continues the theme of our rich diversity with free activities, a motoring and mobility showcase and displays from a broad range of community groups.

RACV’s Community Partners precinct celebrates our natural environment; sporting achievements with the Melbourne Vixens; musical excellence through the Melbourne Recital Centre and RACV’s support of the KIDS Foundation SeeMore Safety Program.

An exciting main stage program of free entertainment awaits with performances at 11.15am and 1pm by Peppa Pig and Peppa’s family, which is sure to delight.  Tap your toes to Aussie rock tunes from the Australia Day Party Band, learn about the importance of being Sunsmart and enjoy the Roulette’s spectacular flying manoeuvres.

Melbourne’s favourite Food Trucks will also assemble to offer a diverse range of culinary delights.

The celebrations will include a 21-gun salute at midday and a flyover by the roulettes at 12.30pm. There will be plenty of activities and fun for all ages.

When: Friday 26 January 2018 – 11am to 4pm
Where: Kings Domain Gardens
