Come and join us to celebrate Aboriginal culture and the didgeridoo!
Free event!

Welcome to the festival

The annual Melbourne Didgeridoo and Cultural Festival is unique in this town.

It is a free, family friendly, not-for-profit event that explores and celebrates Aboriginal culture and its iconic Australian instrument – the didgeridoo!

This year is the festival’s 10th anniversary!

To mark this significant event, a group of Aboriginals from the didgeridoo’s traditional home, Arnhem Land, will meet with local Wurundjeri people, traditional custodians of the land on which the festival is held.

In addition to regular live music, children’s activities and vendor stalls, this year will focus strongly on interactive cultural experiences, facilitating visitors’ engagement with Aboriginal artists.

It’s an unmatched experience of Aboriginal culture and Didgeridoo in Melbourne!

‘This is the BEST Blackfella Festival in Victoria!’
