Get your Flags Ready
Show your patriotic fervour this Australia Day as you cheer on Melbourne's Australia Day Parade.

Australia Day Parade Melbourne
The Parade starts at 11.00am outside Melbourne Town Hall


While there are many activities taking place in Melbourne to celebrate Australia Day, few are as popular as the parade. This colourful parade sees thousands of people lining Swanston Street to enjoy the entertainment, wave their flags and cheer on the participants.

Victorians from all walks of life participate in this annual parade along Swanston Street, over Princess Bridge and into Kings Domain. Swanston Street will be transformed into a wave of colour and movement in a proud display and celebration of our diverse multicultural communities.

This year's Australia Day Parade will include all the favourite traditional cultural and community groups as well as some new faces. In recognition of the Anzac Centenary, the Australia Day Parade will also provide an opportunity to reflect on the contribution of our Anzacs through the participation of their descendants.

The parade also acknowledges the efforts of the emergency services volunteers, who play such a vital role in protecting Victoria's local communities.

The parade starts at 11.00am on Australia Day, Monday 26th January 2015, following the Australia Day Flag Raising Ceremony at the Melbourne Town Hall. It concludes at around 11.45am.
