New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
For the best views of the fireworks - out on the water
Skyfire is an annual concert and firework display, held on Lake Burley Griffin every March. It began in 1989 as part of the Canberra Festival celebrations of that year, organised by radio station 104.7. After huge success, it is now an annual event on the Canberra calendar, with the firework display going off to a music soundtrack on the radio station. This year, on Saturday 18th March, Canberra Southern Cross Cruises will be hosting a cruise out onto the water to get the best view of the spectacular firework display. Cruise the lake and watch the pre-firework entertainment with a RAAF jet flyover and past the concert at Regatta Point. There will be hot and cold canapés and a 3 hour drinks package with beer, wine and soft drink.
