On 26 January each year, Australians celebrate their national day. The date commemorates the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet from Great Britain.
There’s nothing quite like Australia Day on Sydney Harbour, so come and see all the sights here with us in our fabulous iconic water taxis. There is so much to see, the ferry races, heritage boats and ships from a bygone era, spectacular aerial flyovers, and places to go! there are so many!
