2024 Message from the Lord Mayor of Melbourne

The Good Friday Appeal Kids Day Out is one of the most beloved family-friendly events of the year. 

The City of Melbourne is a proud long-time supporter of the Kids Day Out, a day that brings people together while raising money for the incredibly important Royal Children’s Hospital. 

Held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, it is full of activities for young and old including a fun fair, classic cars show, sporting zone and of course, the heart-warming Teddy Bear Hospital. 

All donations from the day go directly to the hospital to continue its work across ground-breaking research, fund state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and family-focused care programs. 

The Royal Children’s Hospital has been helping children across Victoria for more than 150 years – this is your chance to give back and make lasting memories with your family at the same time. 

We hope to see you – and your teddy bear – on Good Friday. 

Sally Capp AO 

Lord Mayor
