Free event: MELBOURNE DAY! All aboard the Enterprize

Melbourne Day is this Sunday, 30th August and there are plenty of fun and free activities to enjoy around this great city of ours.

At the Docklands, it's all aboard the Enterprize. Melbourne’s first settlers embarked from Launceston aboard the schooner Enterprize in 1835. On Melbourne Day, a replica of this striking tall ship will be berthed at Waterfront City and it is opening to the public to celebrate. Free tours aboard the Enterprize give people of all ages the opportunity to experience life on board a nineteenth century sailing ship.

Tours available 9am to 5pm.
Tel. (03) 9397 3477 or visit:

Alternatively, you can celebrate Melbourne Day by trying any number of these simple ideas compiled by our good friends at Living Docklands.

They include walking around the Docklands Sunday Market, enjoying lunch with the last of the Slow Sunday offers, and admiring the sculptures around Docklands Park.

Happy Melbourne Day!
