Strap in for an unforgettable spectacle this Australia Day as the Roulettes take centre stage in Sydney.

For 13 thrilling minutes, the Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) elite aerobatic display team, composed of some of the nation's most skilled pilots, will showcase their awe-inspiring flying prowess over Sydney Harbour.

Watch in amazement as the daredevil aviators push their aircraft to the limits, executing jaw-dropping loops, rolls, and high-G turns. Flying at astonishing speeds of up to 685km/h and as low as 200 feet, the Roulette flyers can endure up to six times the force of gravity, delivering an adrenaline-pumping experience for onlookers.

This special Australia Day display marks the squad's return to the skies above Sydney Harbour on January 26 after more than a decade, promising an exhilarating and unmissable show.

Prime viewing locations to see the looping, whooping, barrel-rolling display of action from the RAAF's top guns include Circular Quay, Hicksons Road Reserve, Overseas Passenger Terminal and the Sydney Opera House.

The Roulettes display is part of Harbourfest, an exciting lineup of free events and fun activities taking place on the sea, shore and sky of Sydney Harbour on January 26.
