Motto: Have a plan and be prepared.

Organised by the Malaysian Students' Council of Australia in conjunction with the Malaysian Cultural arm, Fiesta Malaysia is the perfect way to taste a little bit of Malaysia right in the heart of Melbourne.

Last year more than 20,000 people turned out to sample some of the delicacies and cuisine on offer and they weren't disappointed.

Don't miss out this year. Fiesta Malaysia is being held on Saturday 21st May 2016 starting at 11am, the perfect time to swing past for lunch.
