Have you ever wondered just what was happening around the streets of the Sydney CBD and Darling Harbour during arguably Australia's biggest public holiday attraction, Australia Day?
This year, there are plenty of great fun experiences for the whole family. Here's hoping that the weather holds up to it's nice warm (admittedly, at times humid) reputation, so without further ado, let's get on with it shall we.
Sydney hosted the first motoring celebration on Australia Day in 1986 and this year is no exception. Supercar d'Elegance will be bringing the 'Best of the Best' competition, a Supercar Gathering and a Motorcycle Display to the streets so to speak. More specifically at Macquarie St (Bridge St to Hyde Park), Collect St.
This event begins at 10AM, and will bring a lot of rarities in the car world to not only just the dads but also for the whole family and along with it many photo opportunities too. With the likes of luxury vehicles to classic vintage cars and finally, buses and trucks.
Darling Harbour Australia Day
If you're like me and you enjoy just about anything that is free, then you'd be sure to be impressed by an incredible line up of world music including sweet reggae, tribal rhythms and even children's entertainment.
Ever wondered what it might feel like to be able to get onboard a bus 40 years ago in Sydney CBD? Well now you can, with specially marked bus stops along George, Bridge, Elizabeth and Hay streets, you can go for a ride in a vintage bus.
As part of Australia Day this year, a fleet of vintage buses from the Sydney Bus Museum will run on a circular route throughout the city from 10:30am till 5PM
When there is an opportunity for fireworks, you can be sure to see them on Australia Day at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour with stunning multimedia symphony of light and music. The event officially kicks off at 7PM.
