Australia Day Fireworks in Sydney – 20150
Australia Day Fireworks in Sydney – 2015
What would Australia Day be without fireworks? We know how important it is for you to have the best Australia Day possible that’s why we have all the information you need to plan your night with the family or friends to see what tourists flock in their thousands to see on our Sydney harbour foreshore.
Darling Harbour’s Cockle Bay plays host to the Australia Day Fireworks in 2015 – with the event being called the Australia Day Spectacular. The whole Darling Harbour area is involved to create an inspiring multi-media and fireworks display which serves as a fitting finale to national celebrations. This year, international DJ sensation Havana Brown will be providing the music live on stage in the Darling Quarter Precinct followed by a special concert by various acts.
Pyrotechnics, light and laser technology and specially created buoyant sculptures will serve as the backbone to support the main fireworks display with this year more fireworks being used than ever from special positions in Tumbalong Park and across rooftops around Darling Harbour – bringing the show closer to Sydneysiders than ever before.
Food and drinks will be available from various venues and alcohol is not permitted except for licensed venues. There is a full ban on glass and in the event of rain – the performance will go ahead regardless. The Australia Day Spectacular will commence at 7pm and end at 9:15pm with fireworks a chance of occurring in the last half hour of the show. We would advise that the best place to watch the fireworks in Sydney would be Cockle Bay Wharf but to arrive at the venue early to avoid disappointment as crowd numbers are expected to be quite large.
Public transport is the best method of accessing the venue with vantage points being an easy 5-10 minute walk from Pitt St Mall. Light rail is also available to Darling Harbor from Central Station and ferries stop at King Street and Pyrmont Bay Wharves on a regular basis. If driving is a must – there are a number of carparks in the area but hourly charges are in excess of $10 per hour at most venues.
