Plan your trip - Australia Day events

Plan ahead and leave the car at home. The best way to get around on Australia Day is by public transport.


With road closures in place around the CBD and Docklands, the best way to get around is by public transport.

Public transport services run to a public holiday schedule, so make sure you plan ahead!

For information on train, tram and bus services, visit Public Transport Victoria (PTV).
