The carnival runs from the 4-6 March in Victoria, and this year is embracing the theme ‘The Melting Pot of Cultures’ echoing its international roots and showcasing the country’s rich culture.


A variety of celebrations take place throughout the three days, including colourful processions with multi ethnic floats parading through the capital. An open air restaurant also gives visitors a chance to experience a blend of cosmopolitan food.

The festival culminates in a Family Fun Day, where all the floats gather together at Unity Stadium for some vibrant entertainment.
