Join the celebration that inspires a nation
All eyes are on Sydney every 26 January with its spectacular harbour, famous landmarks and historic streets drawing people from all over to share the spirit and be a part of the day.
The stature and respect Australia Day in Sydney celebrations has achieved is due to a long term strategic vision, consultation and collaboration with our Indigenous community, and partnerships with like-minded organisations who believe in supporting our values as Australians.
Australia Day is a time to come together and recognise our good fortune as a nation.
Making the most of what Sydney has to offer
Australia Day in Sydney is everywhere. There is not one focal point but many dispersed across iconic locations and vibrant precincts throughout the city. These include Hyde Park, Cook & Phillip Park, Customs House, Town Hall, Circular Quay, The Rocks, Darling Harbour as well as many vantage points around the harbour.
The increased spectacle of Australia Day in Sydney celebrations benefits all - the city’s residents, workers and visitors. This major event energises Sydney, showcasing it as a cultural city and a spectacular place to visit.
