The majestic Tall Ships Race has played an integral part in Australia Day celebrations on Sydney Harbour since 1994 and is always a spectacular sight.

Heading off from Bradley’s Head, the historic 1874 tall ship James Craig will lead an impressive fleet of historic and charter vessels as they make their way up the Harbour.

The race will travel on the northern side of Fort Denison, taking in glorious views of Sydney Harbour's iconic landmarks, and is expected to conclude under the Sydney Harbour Bridge at 1.30pm.

Spectators wanting to catch a glimpse of this grandeur are encouraged to line the shores at vantage points of Bradfield Park, Blues Point, Hickson Road Reserve, Overseas Passenger Terminal and the Sydney Opera House.
