Australia - Melbourne

Regional Community

The Melbourne Burner community is thriving ! We welcome people with open arms and encourage participation in our various efforts.

We have two local Burner entitys;

Melburners Inc is a volunteer run association supporting the Victorian burner community. Melburners is part of the Burning Man Regional Network and works alongside other Burning Man organisations and events in line with the Burning Man 10 Principles. The MelBurners Decompression event is the third biggest Decompression globally – after San Francisco and London – averaging 1,000 attendees at the event. Proceeds from this prominent event are returned back to the community via an annual grants program supporting the projects and activities of theme camps, artists and creatives.  

Common Arts Victoria Inc. – CAV is a newly-established organisation dedicated to community-building through art. We believe that art and festivals are a wonderful way to bring people together, create meaningful connections and build strong communities.

If you'd like to get in touch with our very active community send an email to or join the mailing list below.
