Darling Harbour Australia Day - Sydney


• Tuesday 26 January 2016


Every year on 26 January, smack-bang in the middle of summer, is Australia Day. It's a day where Aussies and honorary Aussies (anyone who's here on the day) unite as mates under one big blue sky and share the sizzle of the harbour.

This free one-day party around Cockle Bay includes an incredible line-up of world music, children's entertainment and the official Australia Day Spectacular.

There are many ways to be Australian, but on the nation's day there's only one place like Darling Harbour.
