What was on in Sydney 2022

Australia Day is a day of reflection, respect, unity, gratitude and a celebration of our many achievements.

There are plenty of other ways to mark Australia Day - getting out in your local community in a COVID-safe way, supporting local business, buying locally made products, picnicking by Sydney Harbour with family and friends, booking a cruise on Sydney Harbour or a table at a restaurant in the CBD or watching the Australia Day Live and WugulOra broadcast on ABC TV or iview.
