Australia Day in Wyndham

Wyndham City's free Australia Day program will be held in the heart of Werribee City Centre, with a great line up of family entertainment including live music, kids’ activities, market stalls and a spectacular laser light show to light up Watton Street.

Grab a bite to eat from one of Werribee City Centre’s cafes and restaurants or head down to the Street Food zone for a selection of food trucks. Enjoy the live stage program including a performance from our headline act BABBA.  

The program will also feature family movie - Red Dog, with picnics in the Pop Up Park welcome.

Please note this is an alcohol-free event.

Keep an eye out for local Salvation Army volunteers onsite from 6pm – 9pm raising funds for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal

Wyndham City acknowledges the peoples of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land and waterways on which Wyndham is being built. We pay respects to their elders, past and present.

Note: Fireworks have been replaced by a laser light show, as a sign of respect in response to the bushfires currently devastating parts of Victoria, and Australia more broadly.
