Things to do on Australia Day

Australia Day is just around the corner which means most of us will have the day off to kick back and enjoy some time with friends and family. Whether you prefer to head out or invite some guests over, there’s plenty to do. If the weather is kind to us it’s important to stay safe under the shade when you can. A shade sail can be the perfect solution to provide your outdoor area with some shade and shelter without completely blocking out the warmth and fresh air. No matter what you do this Australia Day, put your safety first. If you aren’t sure what to do yet, here are some suggestions to keep yourself occupied on January 26th.

What’s more Australian than having a few mates over for a BBQ? Cooking some sausages with a beer in one hand is definitely a good way to go. Plus, you can’t go wrong with chilling under your shade sail and blasting Triple J’s Hottest 100.

The Great Sydney Swim
The Great Australian Swim series involves three ocean swims along the east coast of Australia. Take the plunge in the final ocean swim in Sydney with every participant receiving a race pack plus there are some great prizes to be won.

Head down to Sydney Harbour to see the traditional Ferrython take place. Ferries will venture from Circular Quay to Shark Island then back to finish at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Book your place to be a passenger on one of the ferries.

Local Fireworks

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ firework display? Find out what’s on in your local community to see where the closest fireworks will be on. There will by an Australia Day Family Concert and Fireworks in Ryde, an all-ages Hottest 100 Party at Parramatta and of course some spectacular fireworks at Darling Harbour.

Sydney Opera House
Make your way to the iconic landmark, the Sydney Opera House, where some of the country’s best talent will come together for an Australia Day concert. Get a glimpse of the brilliant Tina Arena, Guy Sebastian and Human Nature, to name a few.
