From live music, carnival rides, face-painting, kids’ craft and sports clinics, to a traditional Aussie sausage sizzle and international street food, the festivities will include a spectacular Australia Day Fireworks display at 8.50pm, before Red Dog: True Blue is shown under the stars on the big screen at Cathy Freeman Park from 9.00pm.

Also, the night before Australia Day, a special screening of the quintessential Aussie classic film Strictly Ballroom will commence from 8.30pm on Wednesday 25 January, after a dazzling display of live ballroom dancing from 7.00pm. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from 6.00pm.
