Australia Day celebrations return to Docklands with events and activities throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Bring the family and enjoy the fun, food and entertainment on offer before securing a prime position for the breathtaking fireworks display after sundown.
As part of the Australia Day celebrations, Docklands Chamber of Commerce will present a variety of activities, entertainment, music and food on Victoria Harbour Promenade.
Visitors will be able to view the Alma Doepel restoration as well as take part in the on-water activities that will be available throughout the day.
Restaurants, bars and cafes will be open for the afternoon, making Victoria Harbour the perfect location to enjoy the celebrations with your friends and family.
There will be a ferry service operating on the day for those wanting to check out the activities on the other side of the harbour. The ferries will visit Victoria Harbour, NewQuay, Wonderland Fun Park, Harbour Town and Melbourne Star.
At 9:30pm the Australia Day fireworks will light up the sky over Victoria Harbour in a display to rival New Year's Eve. The fireworks will be synchronised to a Nova soundtrack and will be visible from various locations around Victoria Harbour. Stay on after the fireworks for entertainment on the main stage until 10:15pm.
Don't let the sun steal your fun: Sometimes, even with the best of intentions, you forget the sunscreen. Luckily, SunSense will be on-hand with free sunscreen supplies for all. Remember to Slip, Slop, Slap!
