Australia Day in the Capital

Community Event

26 Jan 2020

Help support those impacted by bushfires at the Australia Day fundraising concert at Commonwealth Park which this year replaces the annual fireworks show.

Watch the National Flag Raising and Citizenship Ceremony at Rond Terrace from 9am then head over to Stage 88 to see national artists Nicole Millar and Japanese Wallpaper supported by local Monica Moore between 10am and 1pm.

Pack a picnic or tantalise your tastebuds with a bite to eat from the food trucks and keep the kids entertained with amusement rides. Support charities assisting the bushfire recovery across Australia including people who have lost homes, those who offer mental health support and wildlife and fauna.
