One of the best ways to experience the Australia Day fireworks is by taking a Sydney Harbour cruise. This allows you to get a front-row seat to the spectacular display of fireworks while enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbour. Fireworks Australia day cruises depart in the evening with a traditional Australian BBQ dinner that is enjoyed with live music. Sydney Tall Ship cruises even have outdoor decks where you can take in the full scope of the fireworks display and enjoy the harbour and its landmarks from a different perspective. Additionally, the cruise itself can be an exciting and memorable experience. The traditional and beautiful look of tall ships will make your experience even more unforgettable. All in all, a cruise in the Sydney Harbour is the perfect way to enjoy the Australia Day fireworks and a memorable time in Sydney with your friends and/or family. 

The Fireworks Australia Day

Australia Day fireworks are a fantastic event that showcases the beauty and spirit of Sydney and the country as a whole. The fireworks display is set over one of the most iconic and beautiful places in the world, the Sydney Harbour. Landmarks such as the Sydney Opera house and all the majestic boats in the water provide a stunning backdrop for the fireworks, making the display all the more spectacular. The combination of the fireworks, the harbour, and its landmarks make it an unforgettable experience, one that you shouldn’t miss.
