Sydney Harbour is the place to be on January 26 with plenty of events for all to enjoy.

Immerse yourself in the spirit of our national day on January 26 and enjoy a packed schedule brimming with entertainment.

From much-loved traditions such as the iconic Ferrython, Maritime Mayhem and annual Harbour Parade to exciting new additions such as the jaw-dropping Royal Air Force Roulettes’ aerial display, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy.

Onboard Ocean Dreaming 2

This year Fantasea Cruising has been invited to lead the Harbour Parade with their flagship vessel Ocean Dreaming 2.

Ocean Dreaming 2 has been wrapped with a livery created by award winning  Gomeroi artist and TAFE NSW teacher Warwick Keen. His work is an interpretation of the Aboriginal art practice of dendroglyphs, which brings together the water and craft.

Memorable Whale Watching Experience

"It was an absolutely great whale watching experience. We saw a lot of humpback whales and dolphins. Beautiful day. Staffs were very friendly. The boat was large, comfy and clean. It was really enjoyable and I'll definitely come back. :)"

Great Cruise!

"Amazing view of the lights without the crowds. The boat was clean and comfortable and not over crowded. Lots of room to move about and get photos. All the staff were friendly and pointed out things of interest. Highly recommended!"

A Lovely Evening Cruise

"Great deal booked online and a really lovely 1 1/2 hrs cruising the harbour. We enjoyed the outdoor deck upstairs, but the inside area was just beautiful for those who preferred to be inside. Staff were lovely and overall experience was terrific. We were blessed with the weather... would highly recommend!"
