If you are a twin, or a family with twins, make your travel plans now to visit Melbourne for an event like no other in Australia.
The 2012 Twins Plus Festival is the biggest and only national gathering of twins, triplets, quadruplets and quintuplets in Australia.
Only held every three years, the festival is a rare opportunity for twins to celebrate their unique lives with other twins, and to share the fun and magic with their family and friends.
The next festival is being held in Melbourne at Caulfield Racecourse on Sunday, 18th March 2012. The program is geared for all ages, and the venue caters especially well for big groups such as twin clubs and extended families.
Over 3000 people are expected to attend the event, with festival goers travelling from across Victoria, around Australia and the world.
The website www.twinsfestival.com.au can help you with how to get there and options for accommodation close to the venue.
Highlights include fun rides for all ages, fabulous live entertainment, shopping outlets geared to twins, great competitions and prizes, a fun twin photographic competition, twin talent quest, meeting twin celebrities, expert advice and displays for twins, twin research studies, and a commemorative all-in twin festival photo.
Tickets are available online at the festival website or freecall 1800-037-021.
The festival is being organised jointly by the Australian Multiple Birth Association and the Australian Twin Registry.
