Presented by the City of South Perth and supported by Lotterywest, the Australia Day Celebration Zone is the place to be for families.

Spanning over 10 hectares along the South Perth foreshore, the event features multiple areas with 100 free activities suitable for toddlers to adults, a range of food vendors and ample shade and picnic areas for families to enjoy. The event provides all with the opportunity to come together and enjoy Australia Day in a safe, alcohol and smoke free environment.

New in 2018 are Gutter Racing, Dart Soccer, Crossbow Golf, Giant Tennis, Inflatable Horse Racing, Penny Drop, Giant Memory Games, Labyrinth Boards, Tether Ball, Toddler Sport Zone, Nerf Zone, Octopus Bouncer and Toddler Tyre Park. 

Adults can participate and win prizes with the Guess What exhibition (presenting 100 strange objects from the past, for you to identify) and the three Guessing Booths. 

In the Art Tent kids can be inspired by what they love about Australia while decorating a kite or a paper umbrella, making a friendship bracelet, creating a beautiful sand art card or making an original fridge magnet. 

The Big Top offers onstage entertainment with puppeteers, storytelling and dance.

Roving entertainers and performers will add to the fun atmosphere.

All activities in the Celebration Zone will wrap up at 7.30pm to allow you to find a spot to watch the City of Perth Skyworks fireworks display at 8pm.

The event provides the opportunity to come together and enjoy Australia Day in a safe, alcohol and smoke free environment.
