Let's party – at your place
Celebrate 185 years
Even in iso, we love you, Melbourne
Join the biggest couch party in marvellous Melbourne's history on Sunday, 30 August – to celebrate our city's 185th birthday.
And share your iso party selfies on social media using #MelbourneDay.
Get your free selfie poster and snap your party – on the couch, under the doona, in your jammies and trackies, baking cupcakes or crying that our footy Grand Final won' t be at the 'G.
This year, we can't hold the traditional flag-raising at Enterprize Park but hoist your own – get your flag poster and share pics of your home ceremony.
Party on the sofa – from Wantirna and Watsonia to Altona, Balaclava and Dromana.
Celebrate what's great AND Melbourne's fascinating indigenous culture and heritage.
When the 'rona is over, Victoria will be more marvellous than ever.
We're 185: be proud and celebrate – on the couch!
Little boss has a head for big ideas
Congratulations to Alicia Gec, 12, for winning the Melbourne Day competition.
The Penleigh Essendon Grammar student edged out four other finalists, chosen from a record number of entries.
She was "sworn in" as the little big boss of Melbourne at a judging ceremony on 19 August, held online because of coronavirus restrictions instead of the customary Melbourne Town Hall's historic council chamber.
"I'm so excited to help Melbourne to be the best we can," she said.
"Mental health is a huge issue during these uncertain times.
"We need to create alternative, creative fun ways to reconnect while we're socially distancing," she said.
