Event:
The first settlers aboard the 'Enterprize' came ashore to establish a settlement in Melbourne on 30 August 1835. Today, Enterprize Park commemorates the landing spot and is the venue for Melbourne Day kick off event. This free event is open to everyone as city councillors, dignitaries, town crier and guests gather to hoist the city's flag. You can enjoy the music of the 35-piece Royal Australian Navy Band Melbourne, sing along to sea shanties by the Enterprize Shanty Band and meet the Enterprize's 'first settlers' in period costume.
