The City of Bunbury's Skyfest Australia Day Celebrations event is free for the community to attend, we invite you all to join us in this celebration of National pride, spirit, and to celebrate all things Australian.
Begin your Australia Day with a BBQ breakfast at 6.30am. This will be followed by the Bunbury Runners Club Fun Run which takes off from the Leschenault Inlet at 7am. The Mayors Citizenship and Awards Ceremony will commence at 8.30am at the Graham Bricknell Music Shell.
From 4pm, there will be a range of free activities and entertainment for the whole family including live music, bush tucker food experiences, Lions train rides and much more.
Australian Summer days heat up pretty fast, so take advantage of Sprinkler City which will host a number of water slides. And the traditional rides and amusements are back again in Sideshow Alley which will run from Friday until Sunday each afternoon and evening.
For the adrenaline seekers, there will be a 4 metre high ropes course with over 40 metres of course to explore. And if you laugh in the face of heights, challenge yourself to a stunt jump from a 3.3 metre platform, or a knee shaking 7 metre platform for those who have no fear.
If meeting native Australian animals is more you speed, be sure to check out the native animal experience where you can get up and close to a variety of native Australia birds, reptiles and other cuddly creatures.
Parents and families with young children can visit the Kids Stage with shows that will entertain the kids while the parents can stand back and watch. There will also be a Toddler Zone filled with a ball pit and play fort, surrounded by fencing to allow parents to breathe a little easier knowing the kids will stay in sight.
Make sure you grab a bite to eat form the large selection of food vans and don't forget to check out the Market Square with a wide selection of products from local and out of town stallholders.
As always, the Family Concert on the Graham Bricknell Music Shell will feature a selection of local and South West musicians, as well as a popular nationally recognised performer as our special headliner.
And of course the Fireworks Spectacular will again light up Bunbury from 8.30pm with the biggest and best Australia Day fireworks display in WA outside of Perth.
