Melbourne’s Major Australia Day Events

Australia Day is a celebration for the whole of Victoria. Our Australia Day program presents a huge range of events and brings together communities from all cultures and backgrounds and from every corner of the state to celebrate our national identity.

Melbourne is the heart of Australia Day celebrations in Victoria. On January 26 every year the city comes to life with a diverse and exciting range of events and activities to ignite national pride and unity, and to encourage a sense of community. The events held in our capital city draw hundreds of thousands of locals and visitors into Melbourne to celebrate as a collective what it means to be Australian.
