Head down to Birramung Marr by the Yarra river and join in the festivities. There's lots of rides, food, art displays, performances, etc. And not forgetting the famous Birdman Rally where competitors launch themselves off the bridge in hilarious costumes & ridiculous contraptions in a bid to see who can fly the furthest. Most result in spectacular crashes into the river!
