We are a land of endless stories – from cultures kept by hundreds of nations of First Peoples to histories carried here from faraway lands. Woven together, these stories create our nation and make us who we are.
Australia Day is a time to acknowledge the contribution of all Australians. A time for people of all backgrounds and cultures to listen, engage and discuss what we love about our country, what we hope to change and where we’re heading as a nation.
On Sunday 26 January 2020 NSW will host a program of events built on the values which define us as Australians: diversity, inclusion and respect.
Australia Day in Sydney will start with the WugulOra Morning Ceremony at Barangaroo, honouring the world’s oldest living culture. This will be followed by an exciting series of free activities across the CBD. As the sun sets, everyone is invited to Circular Quay to experience Australia Day Live, which will be broadcast live to the nation on ABC TV and iview.
There are plenty of Australia Day events happening in Greater Sydney and across the state. We encourage everyone to explore what’s on in their community. A schedule of NSW events will be available soon, so please check back here or visit your local council’s website.
