10:45am to 11:20am Ferrython
Since 1977, the Ferrython has been staged on Australia Day. In 2022, Sydney’s beloved ferries will be colourfully dressed in honour of their namesakes – May Gibbs, Catherine Hamlin, Victor Chang and Pemulwuy. Cheer on your favourite ferry as they compete for honours in the race from Fort Denison, around Shark Island and back to the finish line under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.
12:00pm to 12:10pm RAAF Fast Jet Flypast and Handling Display
F-35 Lightning II fast jets will conduct an impressive fly-past on the last notes of the national anthem at midday, as part of the Salute to Australia at Hickson Road Reserve. The fly-past will be followed by a 10-minute handling display.
12:15pm to 12:30pm Maritime Mayhem
A high-voltage, action-packed display accompanied by fun commentary. See stunts and tricks by jet skis, a tug handling display and then a combination of the two in all-out exhibition of mayhem and manoeuvrability choreographed to a rockin’ soundtrack.
12:45pm to 2:00pm Harbour Parade
You’re invited to send a spectacular Australia Day message to the city by being part of the Best Dressed Vessels. Boats of all shapes and sizes are encouraged to dress up their vessels in the most colourful and creative ways imaginable.
1.00pm to 1:30pm Tall Ships Race
The Tall Ships Race will catch your attention as these majestic vessels part the deep blue of Sydney Harbour. The impressive fleet of historic and charter vessels will start their race from Bradley’s Head and finish under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The race is a mesmerising event for the whole family to enjoy and a convoy of historic and charter vessels will follow the tall ships while spectators on recreational vessels enjoy an up-close experience.
Best vantage point: Bradleys Head to the Bridge on the northern side of the Harbour.
1.30pm to 4:00pm 186th Australia Day Regatta
The 186th Australia Day Regatta is the world’s oldest continuously run annual sailing event and steeped in maritime history. The Australia Day Regatta has been held every year since 1837 and celebrates Australia’s past and present.
