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 the CBD, you can start your day with the Morning Indigenous Ceremony, a symbolic moment to commence Australia Day and celebrate Australia’s traditional landowners. Visit The Rocks and Darling Harbour for an incredible line up of events throughout the day, and watch the exhilarating speeds of The GIO Oz Day 10k Wheelchair Race around the city’s historic quarter.
There’s nothing quite like Australia Day on Sydney Harbour, the city’s crowning jewel. Big bright and exciting, the 2016 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!
