Australia Day in Sydney is always filled with fab events! Theme of the day = FUN! If you’re looking to get involved, there’s so much you can do, including:
The MS Colour Run!
What the heck is a Colour Run you ask? That’s a good question! Turn up in a white tshirt for what will probably be the most fun you’ve ever had doing a 5k! You don’t have to be a superstar runner, just travel through the course at your own pace. Each time you pass through a Colour Station, you’ll be showered with Rainbow Dust. By the time you finish, your white tshirt will resemble a rainbow! All this fun is extra worth it because it’s for a great cause … you’ll be raising money for Australians who live with Multiple Sclerosis.

The Big Issue Street Football Festival!
More than 1000 players. 300 matches. A floating football pitch. Sounds like awesome fun! The Street Football Festival is one of the country’s most significant sporting occasions. Held from 17th to 26th January, you can expect a spectacular climax as part of the Australia Day celebrations on the Harbour. With players from all walks of life, from juniors to government agency teams, pop along and support this program, which supports homeless and disadvantaged people across the country.

The Rocks Rocks Out!
If music is your thing, head towards The Rocks for some of the best melodies of the day. Whether it’s Indie, Rap or even a bit of Karaoke that tickles your fancy, you’ll find it all and more right here! Wander through the markets on your way, then grab a beer, sit back and chill.

Australia Day Spectacular – Cockle Bay
Finish off the day (or get the evening started!) with the biggest events of the day on Darling Harbour. Expect incredible special effects and a remarkable fireworks display that will make you ‘Oooh’ and ‘Aaah’ long after the last burst of colour has disappeared from the sky.
All this and so much more makes for a day of celebrations to easily see you through to the next big calendar event! This is just a snippet of what you could be getting up to! For more, take a look here.
