One of Australia’s most iconic free events is back. Our beloved ferries race from Circular Quay to Shark Island and then back to a glorious finish at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Pack a picnic, gather on the foreshore and barrack for your favourite ferry. Toot toot!
Leave the car at home. Extra public transport services are running to help you travel to and from Australia Day celebrations. Plan your trip at transportnsw.info.
To support the celebrations, road closures will be in place.
Be sun safe, eat well, drink plenty of water and wear appropriate clothing for summer weather conditions.
There is no BYO alcohol and no glass allowed at the Rocks, Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay, Hickson Road Reserve, Circular Quay East, Darling Harbour, and Bradfield Park in North Sydney.
Remember, Australia Day is for everyone. Be respectful of people at all times.
