Celebrate Your Way Today

Make the most of your day off in Darling Harbour with fun roving performers, live entertainment and more.

Australia Day is a time for reflection, respect, and, if you choose to celebrate, enjoying the best of what our country offers. However you choose to acknowledge the day, Darling Harbour invites you to enjoy the spirit of Australia this January 26th, with an array of activities that capture the diversity and vibrancy of our nation.

Embrace art and culture

Darling Harbour is not just a destination; it's a cultural hub bursting with street art and public art installations from some truly incredible local and international artists. The Great Darling Harbour Street Art Trail is your guide to finding it all, from a twisting neon light sculpture to hundreds of golden oversized stars dangling from an overpass. Take your time to wander through it all and be awed and inspired.

A round of fun with Pixar Putt

Put a playful twist on the day and tee up for a round of Pixar Putt. This open-air mini golf course features fun, interactive putt-putt holes inspired by the much loved Pixar films. Navigate 9 or 18 holes and step into the worlds of The Incredibles, Up, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, and more.

Pedal Boats on Cockle Bay

Take to the waters as you pedal across the glorious waters of Cockle Bay. Ideal for groups of friends or family, it's a delightful way to experience the harbour, especially on a warm, sunny day. Whether it's a leisurely ride or a playful race, it's a summer activity not to be missed. Boats are available for $45 per 30 minutes.

Summer Splash

Make some waves in the water play area and Village Green South at Darling Quarter, where roving performers will be bringing the area alive with good vibes. Be mesmerised by the Hula Hoopers and Beach Babe Spheres showcasing their impressive skills. Acoustic performances of your favourite summer anthems will have you tapping your feet and dancing along. And for a touch of nostalgia, don’t miss the retro roller-skaters strutting their stuff on Village Green South, adding a sprinkle of old-school cool. Read more here.
