Australia Day in the Capital

Australia Day 2017

There's something for everyone to enjoy and participate in this Australia Day, including an Aussie Day BBQ breakfast, kids concert, the National Flag Raising and Citizenship Ceremony held at Rond Terrace and fun entertainment and activities hosted at the National Museum of Australia. 

There's no better way to end Australia Day with your family and friends than by enjoying the Australia Day Fireworks on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin.

From 9pm the sky above Lake Burley Griffin comes to life with a dazzling fireworks display set to a truly Aussie soundtrack. The best vantage points are Regatta Point, the lawns of the National Library or Rond Terrace. Be sure to get there early to enjoy the entertainment and great atmosphere. 

Pack your picnic, a rug and enjoy!

A full schedule of events will be posted soon, so keep checking this page for updates.
