Moomba Festival (11~14 March 2016)

A celebrated part of the Melbourne events calendar for 60 years, Moomba will be back with an exciting program of events and family entertainment, making Melbourne the ideal place to be for the Labour Day long weekend.

Held over four days, the festival attracts more than one million visitors to the sun-soaked banks of the Yarra to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.

On the Friday night programming will expand in 2016, with the FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands Grand Final kicking off on the Main Stage from 5:00pm, followed by headliners Alpine at 8:30pm.


11 - 14 March 2016

Moomba’s Main Arena will play host to headline acts including iconic Melbourne bands Alpine, British India and Tim Rogers & The Bamboos, plus an array of incredible Australian music talent.

Festival favourite the Birdman Rally will be back for 2016, with competitors plunging into the Yarra River for charity from 12:00pm on Sunday 13 March.

The antics are back with the hilarious Birdman Rally, where contestants aim to fly across the river by leaping off a four-metre platform with wings attached to their costumes.. all for a good cause.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)

Restricted enrolment schools (Melbourne Eastern Region)

These schools are not required to enrol students outside their neighbourhood area unless they have spare places. They are referred to as having an enrolment ceiling and/or a designated neighbourhood area (formerly known as zones).  Any additional students must be enrolled strictly according to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development priority criteria.
