MELBOURNE! Join Michael Long for "The Long Walk 2018" on Saturday 2nd June at Federation Square in Melbourne.
Those who purchase Dreamtime Walker Experience package will be given the amazing opportunity to walk onto the MCG arena and be part of the pre-game entertainment! This will, of course, precede the traditional Dreamtime at the 'G game between highly fancied Essendon Bombers and reigning premiers Richmond Tigers, a memory to truly cherish!
