Enjoy four days of festivities and frivolity at Melbourne's annual extravaganza

Moomba makes the most of Melbourne's still warm March weather with, watersports, live music and more over the Labour Day long weekend.

It's Australia's largest community festival and involves events like roller discos, skateboarding and BMX competitions, fireworks, puppet gardens and sand sculptures of past Moomba 'monarchs'. 

As you make your way through the festival site, you'll encounter roving performances, local musicians, a cubby village and some seriously delicious food served from food trucks.

Annual highlights of Moomba include the homemade glider spectacular that is the Birdman Rally, all the waterski action of the Moomba Masters Championships, and of course the colourful Moomba Parade on the Monday.
