On January 26, relax and celebrate the laid back lifestyle of our vast and diverse country with festivities at South Bank.
Enjoy free live music in the spectacular setting of River Quay at Australia Day on the Green. On from 1-5:30pm, the event offers sweeping city and river views (ideal for picnicking), with performances from Birdman Randy & The Ivory St Preachers and special guest DJs.
Then, watch a free, colourful Australia Day fireworks display at 7:30pm. The best viewing locations are from the Clem Jones Promenade, the Cultural Forecourt and River Quay. Keep an eye out for the special green and gold fireworks in this year’s display and for the first time, the display will feature six pyrotechnic jet ski performers – they’ll be launching fireworks while they perform in front of the Promenade.
South Bank Parklands is an alcohol-free space on Australia Day, including the usually licensed areas of River Quay Green, Picnic Island and Riverside Green. Restaurants and bars with liquor licenses at South Bank will be serving alcohol within their establishments.
