Moomba is a unique festival held in Melbourne each year. The 64 year old festival takes pride in its many long-held traditions such as the Birdman Rally, crowning the king and queen of Moomba, and the spectacular Moomba parade.
This year’s dazzling display will feature 2000 people from diverse backgrounds and cultures wearing amazing costumes, celebrating Melbourne’s unique, multicultural community. You will see performers and dancers from the Caribbean, Fiji and even India. For more information and help with English preparation in Melbourne, get in touch with us.
