If you think Sydney Harbour is spectacular on a quiet day, wait until you see the Ferrython. The annual Australia Day celebration sees our beloved ferries go head-to-head, racing from Circular Quay to Shark Island and back to the finishing post under Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Pack a picnic, gather on the foreshore and cheer on our ferries as they get fast and furious.

Whether you’re sizzling snags, visiting family or partying with friends, there are many ways to celebrate Australia Day in Sydney. In 2014, it also happens to be the final day of the Festival and we’re joining our friends at The Australia Day Council of NSW in celebrating with a huge line-up of events across the city.
