Hurstbridge Wattle Festival – Sunday 25th August, 2019

The Hurstbridge Wattle Festival, is a significant cultural event for Melbournians that has its roots firmly planted in our early rail history.   It’s a joyous celebration of our heritage, environment and community.   Festival goers view the wattles in a blaze of glory along the Diamond Creek as they approach the township of Hurstbridge. As visitors stroll the main street and the various Festival precincts, they enjoy a fabulous and extensive array of entertainment, events and activities for all the family, many of them free.
