About Day by the Bay

 

Day by the Bay is a family-friendly beachside festival to help people build strong relationships with our Bay while having a great day out in a beautiful spot along Melbourne's coast.
The day will feature an amazing lineup of live music, food and drink from local vendors, sustainability-focused market stalls, free nature-based activities and a public art demonstration.
The heroes of the day will be the local community and conservation groups who are passionately devoted to protecting the Bay environment and its inhabitants.
Bring your picnic blankets and enjoy a fun day out lazing by the coast in one of the world’s most important bird protection areas.
Day by the Bay is aiming for zero-waste! Please bring along your keep cups and reusables and help care for our precious marine life.

Public transport to Point Cook Coastal Park is limited.

A free shuttle bus will be operating on the day running back and forth between Williams Landing train station and the festival site. So bring a book or grab your friends, jump on the train and we’ve got you covered.

The first bus will leave Williams Landing station at 12 p.m. and will run continuously until 7:30 p.m.

Carpool

If you choose to drive to the festival, please consider gathering your mates together and coming down in the same car. Good vibes, car tunes and better for the environment! Parking is available within the park, but it may become a bit of a walk once the car park fills up a bit.

Public transport + bike

We suggest that those who enjoy riding their bike might like to catch the train to either Williams Landing or Hoppers Crossing stations and then ride 10–11 km to the park, where there are places to lock bikes up.

  • Ride your bike from William’s Landing train station
  • Ride your bike from Hoppers Crossing train station
