Melbourne Regatta & Blessing of the Fleet

  Published August 15th, 2016

Melbourne has been voted the most liveable city in the world on a number of occasions in recent years and it is also one of the few cities that can pin-point the time, date and the people who founded the city.

The Melbourne Regatta was first held on August 30th 1838, making it the first Regatta in Australia. At the end of this month the Melbourne Passenger Boating Association will once again deliver a magnificent waterside spectacle to celebrate the connection between Melbourne and the sea and recreational boaters are invited to be a part of the festivities.

Born out of a river settlement, developed through trade and immigration, stabilised by gold and farming, the great City of Melbourne owes much to the ships who made that connection.

The rivers and the great bay have been bountiful, providing food, leisure, relaxation and a highway to the rest of the world. Discover too, the land before it became Melbourne. Learn about the people and the natural landscape that existed long before and why this made Melbourne a perfect place to build a village.

Everyone is invited to join in the fun and excitement and come by boat or land on Sunday August 28 2016 to celebrate Melbourne's maritime and indigenous history. If you come by boat then dress your boat to add to the spectacle and the fun.

See a magnificent Spectacle of Cruising Boats, dressed especially for the occasion, hop aboard Free Ferry cruises around Victoria Harbour and be part of a Welcome to Country Ceremony.

Hear Father Bob bless the fleet, listen to live entertainment, walking tours and story telling, shop at the Sunday Market with many food stalls and local cafes open. Be surprised by roving entertainment, sing along with the Mass Choirs and much more
