Australia Day, the nation celebrates and reflects
26 JANUARY 2022
Sydney Harbour takes centre-stage on Australia Day for the Ferrython, Australia Day Live, Australia Day Parade, Tall Ships Race, Australia Day Regatta, Tug and Boat Ballet, flyovers, fireworks and more. Discover our range of Australia Day cruises. The national day is currently held on 26 January, on the anniversary of the landing of the British First Fleet led by Captain Arthur Phillip. The date may change in future years, but for now it remains a spectacular finale to the Summer holidays and the Sydney Festival.
