The Formula One Australian Grand Prix and the Australian International Airshow at Avalon drew huge crowds to Victoria in February and March. The Grand Prix attracted more than 320,000 spectators over the four-day event, while the Airshow drew close to 200,000 attendees across six days, including a well-attended trade component. Regional events also excelled, with the Castlemaine State Festival running from 15-24 March.
Victoria’s events industry continues to show it is in fine form. We look forward to attending the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, which began yesterday and runs until 21 April.
