About the Show
Australia Day is a significant celebration for the Greater Dandenong community with over 11,000 local residents expected to enjoy the festival with family, neighbours and friends.
Australia Day presents a great opportunity for people of different backgrounds and experiences to gather together and reflect on what it means to be Australian, and to celebrate the things we have in common.
The award winning Australia Day Festival will be held in Dandenong Park, corner of Pultney and Foster streets on Friday 26 January 2018, from 3pm to 9.30pm.
This all-ages event will commence with a Welcome to Country and a Smoking Ceremony by a Wurundjeri Elder, followed by a Flag Raising Ceremony and Australia Day Awards on the main stage.
This free family friendly event will feature two stages with live entertainment, roving performers, a dedicated food court, community and market stalls, exciting rides ($2-$6), free family activities, and will conclude with a grand fireworks finale at 9.25pm.
