It’s a joyous celebration of our unique Australian heritage, environment and community.
It’s a chance for locals to come out of winter hibernation and celebrate the joys of living in Melbourne’s green wedge in the Diamond Valley.
This annual event in Hurstbridge began in 2004 and has grown in strength each year. This years festival brings some great new attractions and of course the always popular flagship attraction to the festival is the fully restored K class steam engine from Steamrail Victoria. The steam engine will bring passengers from Flinders Street Station to the festival then shuttle between Hurstbridge and Eltham during the day, culminating in the night train journey from Hurstbridge to the city. Tickets are available for the morning and special night train journey.
Festival goers can stroll the main street and the various festival precincts in the village, and enjoy a fabulous and extensive array of entertainment, events and activies for all the family.
A program of events during the day will be available shortly. Visit and like our facebook page to get updates
