Have the ultimate Australian High Tea
To make a day of it, head to The Tea Cosy to experience the ultimate Australia Day High Tea. Expect towers of Sydney prawn sandwiches, fairy bread with lemon curd, lemon myrtle scones and of course bottomless beverage packages if you’re so inclined. Atherden Street will be adorned with Australian native flora and fauna to set the scene.
Oz Day 10K Wheelchair Race
See our greatest wheelchair athletes rip up The Rocks at exhilarating speeds. Watch along Hickson Road, George Street near Circular Quay or the VIP area located in Ribs and Burgers if you’re keen to witness the action.
Peruse the stalls at the Australia Day Markets
Just down the road between Hickson Rd and Argyle St, there are Australia Day Markets, with food trucks and stalls, artisan vendors, chillout area and local buskers.
Have a picnic by the harbour
On the waterfront, First Fleet Park will come to life with socially distanced outdoor lounge, kids corner including games & delicious snacks that you can grab for your own picnic.
