List your event or business


If your event or business is in the City of Melbourne, you can list it for free on our What's On website. As this site delivers nearly 20 million page views a year and ranks highly in Google search results, a listing should give you some great free publicity.

There is no charge for listing your event or business, but it must:

  • be within the City of Melbourne municipal boundary, which includes the suburbs of Melbourne, Carlton, Parkville, East Melbourne, West Melbourne, Kensington, Jolimont, Docklands, South Wharf and more.
  • fit one or more of the existing What's On site categories

All content selected for use is at the editorial discretion of City of Melbourne.
