Sydney Harbour was the epicentre of the Australia Day 2020 program with large crowds gathering around Circular Quay, Dawes Point and other vantage points to enjoy the action packed activities taking place on and above the water.
The newly renovated Sydney Glass Island hosted 300 Corporate Club Australia members and their guests who enjoyed front row seats to the fun-filled Australia Day harbour program which included:
Salute to Australia
A stirring military ceremony combining the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force. Tens of thousands of people gathered around Circular Quay and other vantage points around the harbour to see the HMAS Canberra hosting the Governor of NSW and receive a 21-gun salute from Bradfield Park. The national anthem was sung ahead of three RAAF Hornet F18s blasting their way down the harbour performing incredible aerial manoeuvres to conclude the Salute to Australia.
Tug & Yacht Ballet
A company of yachts, tugboats, jet-skis and ferries become a graceful maritime dance ensemble, performing synchronised pirouettes to a classical symphony.
Plus more ...
The Sydney Glass Island joined vessels of all shapes and sizes as it travelled around Sydney Harbour taking in the spectacle of activities which included the Ferrython, the P&O Cruise Ships, the harbour parade, tall ships race and more.
We sincerely thank the Sydney Glass Island for its warm hospitality and a truly memorable place to celebrate Australia Day 2020.
