The event will include a Ferrython race, where ferries race from Circular Quay to Shark Island.

Sydney’s tall ships will lead a fleet of historical vessels from Bradley’s Head to the Harbour Bridge.

There will be a street fair with an exciting and vibrant carnival atmosphere, with market stalls, street food, performers and much more.

Locals will be hosting a barbecue picnic on Bondi Beach, or for something a bit more sophisticated, head over to Government House for a nice meal along with live music.

In the evening, the live entertainment starts at 7:30pm, with some of Australia’s best loved musical acts performing, in the lead up to the fireworks at Darling Harbour. There will certainly be no shortage of entertainment for adults and kids alike, with many fun local attractions remaining open despite it being a national holiday!
