City of Perth Australia Day Skyworks

Festivals and Celebrations

26 Jan 2022 Annual Event

The City of Perth Australia Day Skyworks is returning in 2022.

Since its conception in 1985, Skyworks has become the largest community event in Western Australia and the largest Australia Day celebration in the country, attracting over 250,000 people to the foreshore.

The City of Perth Skyworks’ finale will see the sky above the Swan River explode into colour at 8pm, with Western Australia’s largest annual fireworks display.

The pyrotechnic magicians at Western Australian-operated, Cardile Fireworks have a variety of new tricks and effects to ensure the 2022 Skyworks will light up the City of Perth in spectacular style and amaze the audience throughout Australia’s largest and longest fireworks display.

Thousands of fireworks devices containing brilliantly bright pyrotechnic pixels are loaded into volleys of mortar tubes set up and launched from 21 barges spread along the Swan River. Hundreds of manhours of delicate work is taken to ensure every single pyrotechnic effect is safely plugged into the world’s most advanced computer firing system, so that when it comes time to light up the night, they are all ignited and complimented with a music soundtrack.
