Australia Day

The City will host its annual Australia Day Morning Ceremony at Sir James Mitchell Park including the welcoming of the City’s newest Australian citizens, raising of the Australian flag, presentation of the Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards, and the Ted Maslen Memorial University Exhibition Award.

The Rotary Club of Como will then fire up the BBQ and host a Great Aussie breakfast to get you fuelled up for the day ahead. 

Australia Day afternoon will look a little different due to the continuing uncertainty around COVID-19. The Celebration Zone which has previously taken place in the afternoon at Sir James Mitchell Park  will not take place in 2022. Instead, there will be four entertainment zones along the South Perth foreshore where families will be able to enjoy the afternoon and view the City of Perth Skyworks in the evening. Activities will kick off in each of the zones from 3pm and will conclude at 7.30pm in time for the City of Perth Skyworks at 8pm. COVID safety measures will be in place and visitors to the foreshore will be required to be double vaccinated.

Traffic Management, parking and local resident access

In line with Main Roads WA guidelines to manage emergency access as well as safe entry and exit for visitors expected to attend the South Perth foreshore in the afternoon, local traffic management, road closures and parking restrictions will be in place. Please refer to the tabs below for more information.
