Australia Day Celebrations

Australia Day is more than just a public holiday. Whether you’re in the city, on the coast or in a regional area, there are lots of events that celebrate everything that’s great about being Australian.

The Australia Day celebrations in Sydney are fit for Australia’s oldest and biggest city with events and activities spread far and wide.

In 2015, Hyde Park will be transformed into a Summer Playground for Aussie kids. With plenty of on-stage fun organised by leading entertainment brand for kids and family – Nickelodeon, there’s never a dull moment in the interactive zones set up throughout Hyde Park. You’ll find Nickelodeon characters at the meet and greet zone, then there are stacks of activities to keep the whole family entertained.

Come along and enjoy the sports areas, face painting, balloon sculptures, story reading and even superhero dress ups with a green screen so the kids can have their photo taken flying over iconic Australian landmarks!

In the CBD, Australia Day CARnivale will showcase hundreds of veteran, vintage and classic cars, buses and trucks as well as an extensive range of high-performance and luxury vehicles.

There’s nothing quite like Australia Day on Sydney Harbour, the city’s crowning jewel. Big bright and exciting, the 2015 program will see the harbour transformed into a floating festival of new events, with old favourites mixed in. Boats  of all shapes and sizes will form part of the cavalcade of colour and craft along the foreshore.

 We hope to see you there!
