Australia Day 2016 - Daytime Celebrations


Australia Day is the most spectacular day on Sydney Harbour with continuous events throughout the day. The Magistic lunch cruise, Showboat lunch cruise and the Magistic Sail Ferrython Cruise presents three different cruising options to celebrate this day.

11:00am – Ferrython (ferry race)
One of the most popular event is the annual Ferrython which has been entertaining spectators for over 30 years. The famous “ferry race” sees four bright and colourfully decorated First Fleet ferries battle it out to the first ferry to make it under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The race starts from Fort Denison, around Shark Island and finishes at the Harbour Bridge.

11:00am to 2:00pm – Best Dressed Vessel Parade
The annual Australia Day Parade presents an amazing spectacle of watercraft ranging from yachts, boats, ships, barges, tall ships, cranes, ferries and tour boats. The array of vessels on display are also in competition for the title of Best Dressed Vessel. Starting under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the vessels will travel around Clarke Island and back.
