Come January, Sydney gears up for another rocking Australia Day!

For more than a period of three decades, the most popular festivities of Australia Day have concentrated around the Sydney Harbour and the most popular event during this entire period of time has been the Ferrython. The Ferrython, the famous race of the First Fleet ferries, like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, has now become iconic of the nation as well as the city of Sydney. People throng the harbour on this day to watch and cheer the Fleet in true Aussie spirit.

Adding colour to the spirit is the Australia Day Parade, where various watercraft, including boats, ferries, barges, tall ships, yachts and cranes, dressed up to their best, vie for the title of the Best Dressed Vessel.

The awesome aerial display of the Royal Australian Air Force has also been a very popular feature that the Australians have proudly looked forward to over the years, proclaiming their national spirit.

The night sees the festivities conclude in a glorious finale with spectacular fireworks that burst in different colours and designs across the Sydney sky.

The Sydney Harbour being the hub of activity, there is no better place than a cruise boat to experience the full excitement of the day. There are lunch cruises, dinner cruises, Ferrython cruises and fireworks cruises, to name a few, that take you close to where all the action is. The Magistic Cruises and the Sydney Showboats provide uninterrupted view of the harbour events from their expansive decks, along with reserved seating in air-conditioned surroundings, not to mention freshly prepared choice food. The Showboats dinner cruise presents live entertainment also featuring dance, music, magic and fun! The Tall Ships provide fun as well as adventure as you get to participate in the Tall Ships race too!

These cruises sell out fast and quick every year. So check out and book yours, mate, or you will miss the boat!
