Monday the 9th March marks Labour Day here in Melbourne! Here at Ozford Melbourne we are looking forward to celebrating this long weekend and making the most of the extra day off by checking out what Melbourne has to offer!

Moomba Festival 2020

2020 marks Moomba Festival’s 66th year, and it continues to be Australia’s largest free community festival where millions of people attend every year. The festival is held over four days, from the 6th until the 9th March and includes events such as the Moomba Carnival, Moomba Fireworks and the Moomba Parade! Make sure you head to Birrarung Marr along the Yarra River and just next to Federation Square to enjoy what the festival has to offer!

Moomba Birdman Rally 2020

The Birdman Rally is a yearly event which is full of hilarious attempts of Melburnian’s trying to flap, fly or even fall all in the name of charity! Individuals leap off the Birdman Platform aiming to fly and become victorious by leaping the furthest into the Yarra River.

This will be taking place at Birrarung Marr this Sunday as part of the Moomba Festival for the Labour Day Long weekend. It has been taking place since 1976 and aims to raise money and awareness for the jumpers’ nominated charities.

It’s all big, it’s all colourful and it’s all free!

It’s no wonder why Melbourne has been named the World’s Most Liveable City seven consecutive times. Come and experience it for yourself at Ozford Melbourne, whether it’s studying for your Bachelor of Business degree, our High School Programs or even improving your English at The Ozford English Language Centre, and see why you too can be the happy achiever.
