Event:
Roll on up to this year's Point Walter Concert
Point Walter Reserve is a lovely spot and a fabulous place to hold a concert with our hot climate. It is a large riverside reserve which has fabulous views of the Swan River and is located in Bicton on Honour Avenue. When the tide is out, you can walk from the foreshore into the river along the Point Walter Sandbar. Many people use this natural phenomenon to take some interesting photos!

It is quite large, has a natural beauty and many facilities, making it the perfect location for any occasion, from a relaxing family picnic/outing to a large wedding.



The Point Walter Concert is the Melville City's leading event where thousands of people attend the Point Walter foreshore every year. Here you will be able to enjoy a night of live music, entertainment, children's activities and a spectacular fireworks finale. It would not be our summer events season without this ever-popular Point Walter concert!



It will be held on Sunday 3rd March 2019, from 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm.



This year's headline acts include the following:

All-Star Supergroup Tribute Band, who will perform tributes of seven of the world's biggest acts, including David Bowie, Blondie, Robbie Williams, Dire Straits, Oasis, Madonna and the Rolling Stones
AViiDA, a Perth powerhouse duo who smashed their way through 2015's The Voice



Melville's very own pub choir will also perform for the first time, having been established this year at Clancy's Fish Pub. They have been guided by well-known conductors Jim Fisher and Natalie Gillespie.

There will be plenty of other activities for the whole family, including face painting, a bouncy castle and various pop-up information stalls to go to. As the weather is fantastic at this time of year, it would be a good idea to bring your bathers so you can cool down in the river!

Getting there
There will be some road closures for the event and these include Carroll Drive, which will be closed in both directions to prevent any potential damage to the golf course. The small car park off Honour Avenue will also be closed to the general public apart from those with an ACROD sticker.

There will be free parking at the Attadale Foreshore, with the entry located off Tanson Street. It will be managed by volunteers from the Melville State Emergency Services Unit. There will also be free buses with trailers, so you can bring your eskies and these will run all day to and from the event area. There is also parking at the Burke Drive car park at Point Walter though this will probably be very busy.

Drop Off
There will be a drop-off and pick-up point located at the Burke Drive car park at Point Walter. As well as plenty of spaces to lock your push bike as long as you bring your own lock.

Food and drinks
A variety of food can be purchased on the day, including:

Bantastic Mi
Boost Juice
Nacho Evolution
Porta Pizza

There will also be ice cream trucks, a popcorn stand, fairy floss and the Walters River Cafe will be open as usual. You could also bring your own food/picnic and alcohol is also permitted. Please note - dogs are not permitted in this area.
