Australia Day in the City is the major public event to celebrate Australia Day in South Australia. Since becoming a twilight event in 2010, the crowds have continued to grow with 30,000+ attendees enjoying the street parade, concert and fireworks each year! Headline acts in previous years have included Ricki-Lee, Stan Walker, Jessica Mauboy and Vanessa Amorosi.
The event begins with one of the largest Australia Day Parades in the country, featuring more than 4000 people celebrating what they love about Australia and being Australian. The Parade includes over 150 community groups, 100 vintage cars, 30 horses, 15 marching bands, a giant echidna, floats, giant characters and includes a fly past by an F-18 Hornet. The Parade begins at Victoria Square and ends at Elder Park via King William Street.
Free Family Concert
