A new addition to Moomba’s popular program, the Silent Disco will get people moving to punk, disco, Latin, house, afro beat and hip hop without disturbing a soul.

Along with the parade and other family favourites such as the Birdman Rally, waterskiing and family fireworks, music will be a key focus of Moomba this year. Other attractions that will feature at Moomba are the Children’s Garden, sports clinics, carnival rides, Art Play and Riverslide Skate Park. For the second year, Moomba will partner with charity group ‘Save the Children’.

Moomba will be held along the banks of the Yarra River from March 11 - 14. For more information visit
