Australia Day in Sydney

Tuesday 26 January 2021

Overview

On Australia Day, Sydney hosts a program of events built on the values that define Australians: diversity, inclusion and respect.

Start your day at the WugulOra Morning Ceremony at Barangaroo, which honours the world’s oldest living culture. Then take part in some of the free activities across the Central Business District. Skip through Summer Playground, explore the wonders of Sydney Street Party or treat yourself to a barbecue by the bridge.

Whoever you are, Australia Day is yours to celebrate.

As the sun sets, everyone is invited to Circular Quay to experience Australia Day Live. Watch jet-skis, fly-boarders and dancing yachts perform as Aussie musical legends rock out on the Sydney Opera House Forecourt stage and fireworks illuminate the sky.
