Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

SYDNEY Har­bour will again be the jewel of Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions with a range of ex­cit­ing events for peo­ple of all ages.

The many events on the wa­ter will in­clude the muchloved Fer­ry­thon, the fun Tug and Yacht Bal­let, the spec­tac­u­lar Tall Ships Race and the im­pres­sive Aus­tralia Day re­gatta.

Be­gin­ning at noon, the Salute to Aus­tralia will fea­ture seven choirs around Sydney Har­bour singing the na­tional an­them as our armed forces com­bine ef­forts to pay trib­ute to Aus­tralia.

Front and cen­tre will be the Aus­tralian Navy’s largest flag­ship, the newly com­mis­sioned HMAS Ade­laide, along with a 21-gun salute and a fly­over by RAAF jets.

For those who pre­fer the ac­tion to come to them, the Cruis­ing Con­certs are the per­fect so­lu­tion.

Two float­ing stages will make their way around the Har­bour, drop­ping in to pop­u­lar lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Brad­field Park, Blues Point Re­serve, Over­seas Pas­sen­ger Ter­mi­nal, the Sydney Opera House and Baranga­roo from 12.15pm.

Cel­e­bra­tions will turn to the sky as the Rus­sian Roo­lettes daz­zle with their aer­o­batic dis­play and the Red Berets demon­strate their parachute skills.

The day will end with a bang with P & O Cruises host­ing a fire­works dis­play off a barge in the in­ner har­bour. De­tails: visit aus­trali­a­day.com.au.
