As the sun sets on our national day, the Sydney Opera House forecourt and Circular Quay come alive for the unmissable Australia Day Live concert.

This unique event features live musical performances choreographed to a flotilla of yachts, projections on the Sydney Opera House sails, and stunning pyrotechnic displays over Sydney Harbour.

A stellar line-up of true blue Australian musical acts will take the stage to belt out beloved hits, accompanied by a full orchestra.

The full line-up of performers will be announced in January.
