Australia Day Harbour Parade

There’s no better place to be on Australia Day than sparkling Sydney Harbour! Here’s your chance to be part of the annual Harbour Parade where you can dress up your boat and crew and challenge for ‘Best Dressed’.

In 2024, the Harbour Parade will be part of the exciting new Harbourfest program which will take to the sea, shore and sky with an abundance of free and fun activities… and to top it off, all parade participants are now in prime viewing position for the annual Ferrython’s new race route (see attached).

Vessels of all shapes and sizes are welcome to join the flotilla. Prizes will be awarded to the winning vessel in each of the following categories:

  • Budgie Smuggler Award — Best Small Vessel
  • Best in the Biz Award — Best Commercial Vessel
  • Hello Sailor! Award — Best Newcomer
  • The Captain’s Choice Award — Best Dressed
  • Going Overboard Award — Most Imaginative

In addition to the Ferrython front seat, all Harbour Parade winners will also gain exclusive access to the managed viewing area at Jeffrey Street Wharf for the Australia Day Live spectacular in Circular Quay where you can listen to the concert via FM simulcast and watch the choregraphed fireworks from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

Registrations close 5:00pm AEDT on Monday 15 January 2024. Register here
