Main attractions of Australia Day in Sydney
Australia Day sees Sydneysiders indulging in a string of activities commemorating the heritage and glory of Australia.

January 26th is a special day for Aussies. It’s the National Day of Australia, celebrated with much fervour and energy throughout the country. The day marks the arrival of the first fleet of convict ships at Port Jackson and the raising of the British flag at what is now Sydney Harbour, in 1788. From then on there was no stopping this great nation, rising from strength to strength. The greatness culminates every year on the Australia Day celebrations, which have always been steeped in tradition, going back many years.

So what are the main events that highlight Australia Day in Sydney? The Harbour is one of the main stages for the activities that unfold as part of Australia Day celebrations. Some of the main highlights are the Ferrython, Tall Ships race, RAAF fly through, Wugulora Indigenous Morning ceremony to name a few. The evening is finished off by the spectacular Darling Harbour Australia Day fireworks. There are many venues from where you can get good views of the events but the best views are from the decks of any of the Australia Day cruises on Sydney Harbour. These special event cruises cover most of the popular Australia Day harbour events and offer a close view to all the action.

First started in 1837, the ship races have garnered intense participation and viewership, thus prompting the organisers to make it a yearly event. The races of the ferries and tall ships are an important part of Australia Day celebrations on the harbour. In olden days, spectators stood on the decks of ships to get the best views of the races. Now there are many Australia Day cruises on the Sydney Harbour offering the same, continuing the tradition.

Australia Day is also about celebrating the multi-culturalism of the country, with the population comprising of descendants from different races. The indigenous Australians have a rich culture of their own and that is showcased in the Wugulora Indigenous Morning Ceremony. Indigenous population of Australia form a key part of the demographics of the country and are honoured every year in Australia Day celebrations.

Many choose to celebrate the holiday by hanging out with loved ones.
