Ways to Celebrate Australia Day

Australia’s national day—Jan. 26—is one of the country’s most popular public holidays and a nationwide celebration of all things Australian. Barbecues, parades, fireworks, and music concerts add to the festive mood. It’s also a memorable time to visit iconic Australia attractions. Here are some ideas for celebrating Australia Day. 

  • Attend the official Australia day celebrations in Canberra, including an Australian flag raising ceremony, citizenship ceremonies, and a huge fireworks display.

  • Watch the Australia Day Parade in Melbourne, and then dine aboard the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. 

  • Join the crowds for the gigantic Australia Day Party in Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Afterwards, cool off with a swim at Bondi Beach.

  • Tuck into Aussie treats like pavlova, chocolate tim tams, and meat pies at the Great Australian Bites festival on Brisbane’s Southbank.

  • Admire the Australia Day Skyworks in Perth from the water on a Swan River cruise.

  • Make like a local and enjoy an Aussie barbecue or “sausage sizzle,” attend a beach or pool party, or watch a cricket match.

  • Celebrate Australia Day by checking off some of Australia’s bucket list wonders—climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, snorkeling or scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, or driving along the famous Great Ocean Road.
