    Lord Mayor’s Welcome

    Lord Mayor Robert Doyle

    Celebrating the joy of movement, the Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Festival is a unique event in our city. The energy and enthusiasm of all participants is plain to see on the faces of those taking part.

    If all Victorians are to enjoy memorable experiences in recreation and sport, equal access and opportunity are essential. The City of Melbourne is proud of its commitment to accessibility.

    While Federation Square hosts many festival activities, you are also invited to visit Melbourne City Baths, Riverslide Skate Park or any of the other facilities that offer adaptive and inclusive recreation options.

    The festival is a superb way for Victorians with a disability and their carers, families and friends to take part in free and stimulating activities. With more opportunities and information, people have the chance to make their own choices and be fully involved in sport and recreation. As the world’s most liveable city, Melbourne also aims to be one of the most inclusive. We welcome all Victorians to this festival of freedom and fun.

    Robert Doyle
    Lord Mayor
