SUM­MER in Sydney full swing.

All thoughts are on Christ­mas but be­fore you know it, we’ll be cel­e­brat­ing Aus­tralia Day on Jan­uary 26.

Sydney Har­bour is again a fo­cus of fes­tiv­i­ties but there is plenty go­ing on away from the wa­ter.

From 9am, some of the world’s finest wheel­chair ath­letes will race around Al­fred St in The Rocks for the 27th an­nual GIO Oz Day 10K Wheel­chair Race.

The Rocks will also be busy with The Rocks Mar­kets, of-

is in fer­ing some of Aus­tralia’s best fash­ion, jew­ellery and art.

Along Ge­orge St, enjoy the seren­ity of Sky Gaze, strike up some friendly ri­valry at the cro­quet lawn and party down to Lolo Lov­ina’s Car­a­van, where Triple J’s Hottest 100 will count down.

In Hyde Park North, Sydney Fes­ti­val’s Fes­ti­val Vil­lage has de­li­cious treats and funky tunes by Soul of Sydney from noon.

Dar­ling Har­bour has free en­ter­tain­ment from noon, in­clud­ing live mu­sic, dance, rov­ing brass bands and Bol­ly­wood dancers.

The ac­tion cul­mi­nates in a spec­tac­u­lar fire­works dis­play at Cockle Bay, set to a sound­track by Sneaky Sound Sys­tem.
