Australia Day Celebrations | Sydney Accommodation

Australia Day on Sydney Harbour and surrounds – Sunday 26th January.

Australia Day is more than just a public holiday. The Australia Day celebrations in Sydney are befitting of Australia’s oldest and biggest city with events and activities throughout the area.

All the events in Sydney on Australia Day will follow the Woggan-ma-gule Morning Ceremony performed in the Royal Botanic Gardens. This is the sacred land of the Indigenous Gadigal people and marks the official start of Australia Day activities in the city.

Australia Day in the Park will be a marathon of events in Sydney all day long. At lunch time, grab a bite to eat at one of the many food stalls located around Hyde Park and relax on the grass.

There’s also plenty of fun to be had on Sydney Harbour. See the Tall Ships, tugs, ferries, barges and vessels of all shapes and sizes strut their stuff for the thousands of spectators on the shoreline. Or enter your own boat in the Best Dressed Vessels Competition where you can score yourself a trophy and prizes for your colourful and imaginative creations.

The great thing about Australia Day is it’s all about celebrating what we believe is great about our country and spreading that Aussie spirit we have in all of us.
