Australia Day Parade and Picnic @ Queen Victoria Gardens
Jan 26 @ 11:00 am

The Doctor Who Club of Victoria has again been asked to be part of the Australia Day Street Parade**.

The parade starts at 11:00am, however we recommend arriving a little earlier as good positions tend to get snapped up! Come and support us, along with seeing many other cultural and special interest groups from around Melbourne.

With the success of last year, this will again be a TARDIS trip, with a picnic afterwards. Members, fans and friends are welcome to join us for a picnic afterwards. Bring a blanket or a chair and a picnic lunch for a relaxing afternoon with other Doctor Who fans!

We will also be manning our phone on the day though, so if you can’t find us, we can give you directions. 🙂

We are looking to start the picnic after midday (we will also have some committee members there early to set up and get our spot, so feel free to come by any time).

**If you are interested in joining us for the actual parade, places are limited. You must be wearing either Doctor Who related cosplay (Torchwood, Class, etc are also acceptable), or Doctor Who clothing such as a T-shirt or scarf. As there is a restriction on the number of people who will be able to part of the parade, preference will be given to cosplayers. Contact us to register!
