Melbourne's biggest and brightest annual event, with a hearty tradition of free family fun, pays tribute to the important role water plays in citizen's lives. Each year the programme for the four-day fair grows bigger and better, with activities like open-air movie shows, giant sand sculptures, waterski and wakeboard championships, Dragon Boat races, the crazy 'Birdman Rally' and a spectacular fireworks display, to name but a few. Highlights are the Moomba Parade and the Waterfest Carnival.
Venue: Swanston Street, Melbourne CBD
