Trusted Travel acknowledges the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung People of the Eastern Kulin Nation as the continuing custodians of the land we will be visiting.

Ability Fest is a one-day festival brought to you by the Dylan Alcott Foundation & Untitled Group that aims to use music as an inclusive platform to normalise disability.

The festival venue will be transformed into a completely accessible venue with the inclusion of elevated platforms, pathways, quiet zones, companion ticketing, ramps, stacks of friendly volunteers & of course accessible toilets are a priority of the Ability Fest team.

With a line-up that is sure to please, this is the festival for you! We heard first hand at the Your Voice Your Choice conference from Dylan Alcott himself how he and his team have worked tirelessly to bring great artists and musicians to an inclusive and accessible environment - and we want to help you get there to enjoy every minute of it.

Being part of a festival like this is a money can’t buy experience as we all band together to make an impact & change lives.

And it’s not just the festival you’ll be enjoying! While in Melbourne, you will also have the chance to visit the iconic Docklands district. Well known for some bargain shopping. While in Docklands, hop on the Melbourne Star Wheel. You can everything from up there! Browse through the isles at the famous Queen Victoria Market and check out some of the very cool street art Melbourne is well known for, including AD/DC lane!
