2017 Australia Day Parade


The Ringwood Highland Pipe Band will be marching as a part of the 2017 Australia day parade in Melbourne.  The parade starts at 11:00 AM from the corner of Bourke Street and Swanston Street in the city, and makes its way down Swanston street past the town hall and Flinders street station, over the Princes Bridge and finishes at the Kings Domain gardens.

The Australia Day Parade is a vibrant and colourful procession that sees thousands of people line the streets of Melbourne CBD to enjoy the entertainment and cheer on participants from over 90 community and cultural groups, in a proud display and celebration of our culturally diverse community.
