Australia Day in Newcastle

Festivals and Celebrations

26 Jan 2020

Come and join the fun in the Newcastle CBD on Sunday 26 January 2020.

There’s something for everyone from dawn till dusk. Swimmers will take on Stockton Surf Lifesaving Club’s cross-harbour challenge early in the day before parkour, skateboarding, inflatables and live entertainment on the Foreshore.

A Trans-Tasman Youth Touch Football Test series will see Kiwi sides take on our best in a City-backed tournament at No.2 Sportsground; local triathletes will race alongside Paralympian Lauren Parker as she defends her 2019 Oceania Paratriathlon title* and a newly restored 80-pound gun will fire for the first time in 100 years from Fort Scratchley.
