Cactus Country invites you to celebrate the vibrant beauty of life at our Dia de Los Muertos event!

Immerse yourself in a sea of colour and music as you wander through our stunning flower-filled altar and sugar skull displays, all set to the lively tunes of live mariachi music. As the sun dips below the horizon, get ready for a spectacular fire dance performance that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

After the show, take a leisurely stroll through our 12-acre garden, open late for your viewing pleasure. The soft glow of the moon will create a truly magical atmosphere. Don't forget to bring your torch to guide your way!

Indulge in delicious flavours from The Happy Mexican, one of Melbourne's favourite restaurants. Their authentic dishes are sure to satisfy your cravings and add to the festive atmosphere.

Capture unforgettable memories in our colourfully decorated courtyards, you'll really feel like you've travelled to Mexico! And don't forget to dress up in your finest attire, as we celebrate life and its precious moments!

Dia de Los Muertos, an ancient Aztec tradition, honors the memory of loved ones who have passed on. It's a time for families and friends to come together, pay tribute to those we've lost, and cherish the gift of life.
