Labour Day Weekend

Make the most of the Labour Day long weekend from 9 - 11 March 2024, with these top picks.

Explore Werribee Park Mansion
Pack a picnic (or leave it to the experts) and explore the stunning grounds of Werribee Park Mansion (open daily including public holidays). Allow time to tour the interior of the Mansion and stroll across to the Victoria State Rose Garden to enjoy the roses while they’re still in bloom.

Making a weekend of it? Book in for lunch or drop in for a cellar door tasting at Shadowfax Winery or experience the Mansion after dark, with immersive theatre production What Was That on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 March – tickets are limited so you’ll need to be quick.

Experience the Wonder of Light-based Festival LIT
As the sun goes down, Wyndham Park will be LIT again this March for 14 spectacular nights. Head down during the opening weekend from 8 – 10 March (8pm – 11pm) and see the glimmering ChronoHarp and Trumpet Flowers, a trail of softly glowing gumnuts, playful parrots, kaleidoscopic projections and the magic of Ursula Lassos the Moon!

See the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Concert
On Friday 8 March, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra present Marvellous Mozart at Wyndham Cultural Centre. After the show, stay on to explore LIT or grab dinner at Rosana Bistro & Bar, Hecho En Mexico or Tocca. Bookings Essential.

Stay up Late
Get your crew together and create your own tasting trail along Watton Street, with must-try spots including the elegant Corked Wine Bar, tacos and tequila at Casa Cantina, beers in the sun at the Bridge Hotel Werribee or Teddy Picker and when you’re ready to hit the dance floor – buzzing new Studio 185.



Go on Safari
Turn your long weekend into an African safari at Werribee Open Range Zoo! The Safari Bus (included in entry) is a must. For more family fun, take your pick from mini golfbowling, laser tag and arcade games or the terrific playground at Wyndham Park.

Spend a Weekend out on the Green
Enjoy the challenging Greg-Norman designed championship golf course at Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club! Stay and Play onsite, with a weekend package at Quest Sanctuary Lakes. For more time on the green, head to Werribee Park Golf Club, known for its stunning views of Werribee River.
