RACV Australia Day Festival at Kings Domain Gardens

The RACV Australia Day Festival in Kings Domain Gardens is a long-standing Australia Day event in one of Melbourne’s beautiful city gardens.

This much-loved event is held after the Australia Day Parade, continuing the theme of togetherness and belonging with free family-focused activities, displays from a broad range of community groups and the 2020 RACV Australia Day Heritage Vehicle Showcase.
