Happy birthday Melbourne
Did you know Melbourne celebrates its birthday next Tuesday, 30th August? Yes, Melbourne will be 181 years old on this day and for that reason, the City of Melbourne is putting on a party to celebrate!

Everyone is invited and there is something for everyone - flag raising ceremony at 9 am at Enterprize Park; a lunchtime concert at Federation Square featuring Ross Wilson (from Daddy Cool) and Jack Howard (Hunters and Collectors; and on Sunday the 28th August there is the Regatta and Blessing of the Fleet at Victoria Harbour.

There are free giveaways and free birthday cupcakes on the day. The website provides lots of information about the day as well as about the history of Melbourne and its founding.

Melbourne has once again been voted the World's Most Liveable City (6 years in a row) by the EUI so that's one more reason to celebrate this great city!
