Australia Day Live

When

Wednesday 26 January from 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Throughout the concert, crowds around the Quay will be dazzled as they gaze upwards to a brilliantly synchronised pyrotechnics display that lights up the summer night sky, showcasing Sydney internationally as a major event and travel destination.

Paying tribute to the Australian spirit, the Sydney Opera House sails will light up during the show with an array of inspirational images that encapsulate the nation and its people.

If you’d love to be part of the Australia Day Live concert at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt, limited free tickets will be available here from 18 January 2022. If you're lucky enough to score a ticket, we recommend you grab your seat early – as the fun pre-show entertainment starts at 6:30pm and the main show at 7:30pm.

Everyone else is welcome to gather around Circular Quay or watch the concert live on ABC TV or ABC iview from 7:30pm AEDT.

The unmissable Australia Day Live is produced by the Australia Day Council of NSW and the NSW Government and supported by the state government’s tourism and event agency, Destination NSW and the National Australia Day Council.

More information on ticketing, accessible areas, hosts and the performer line-up will be released in January 2022. Sign up to the Australia Day newsletter for updates. Full accessibility and inclusion details are also available on our website.
