Melbourne Parkview Hotel is the perfect location to base your family to explore the very best of Melbourne this March.

From 9 to 12 March on the Labour Day long weekend, Moomba turns the banks of the Yarra River into an all-ages playground with music, entertainment, food and more. This year’s program is jam packed with free events for the entire family, including the return of the Friday unlimited rides pass.

Enjoy free Disney classics under the stars on the Big Screen at 6:30pm every night at Birrarung Marr, followed by spectacular Fireworks at 9.30pm every night in Alexandra Gardens. The popular Birdman Rally returns on Sunday 11th March, where competitors leap off a four-metre platform and plunge into the Yarra River for charity. The annual Moomba Parade commences at 10.45am on Monday 12th March on nearby St Kilda Road and is not to be missed.

With school holidays just around the corner, there are also plenty of nearby activities to keep the kids entertained:
