Aussie BBQ on Aussie Day!

Australia Day is a celebration of the nation and everything essentially Australian. Of all Aussie Day celebrations, those around the Sydney Harbour are the most spectacular with the presence of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge to add beauty and distinction to the events.

Ferrython, the race of the First Fleet ferries, has been keeping the Aussie spirits high for the last 30 years. The Tall Ships race is also much looked forward to by the adventure and outdoors-loving Aussies. The Australia Day Parade, where different watercraft compete with each other for the Best Dressed Vessel title, adds spice to the events. The fireworks display is the grand finale with which the events come to a close on the Sydney Harbour. All these events are best experienced from a cruise that takes one close to all the excitement and frenzy.

Another feature of the Australia Day that is completely and absolutely Australian is the BBQ. In Hyde Park, which is popularly known as Sydney’s Biggest Backyard, amidst live entertainment from the Great Aussie BBQ stage, Sydneysiders and visitors will enjoy various delicacies of Hereford beef. Meeting Hereford graziers, watching cooking demonstrations and guessing the weight of Hank the Hereford bull contest are some of other highlights of the day.

After all, just how Aussie can Aussie be without the outdoors and a barbie?
