Celebrate Australia Day by paying a visit to Sydney’s Darling Harbour.

Travellers booking flights to Sydney could be pleased to hear they may be in the city in time to celebrate Australia Day.

Taking place each year on January 26th, one of the most exciting places to celebrate the national day is at the city’s Darling Harbour, where a range of events are held.

Each year around 200,000 people descend on the harbour to join in the fun, with a huge number of events taking place across the day.

Visitors can expect to see everything from bands and dancers performing on stages during the day.

In the evening, a parade of tall ships is one of the highlights, with a firework and laser show marking the end of the fun-packed day.

People heading to the harbour after taking flights to Sydney could also spend time at the city’s aquarium, which is currently home to a giant Japanese spider crab named Sake.
