Australia Day

The City of South Perth hosts a family friendly Australia Day celebration at Sir James Mitchell Park on the beautiful and iconic South Perth foreshore on 26 January each year.

The day commences with a special Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony, which includes 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 then fires up the BBQ to host a great Aussie breakfast to get you fuelled up for the day ahead. 

The Celebration Zone, supported by Lotterywest is a smoke and alcohol free area packed with free activities, rides and entertainment for all ages. The event kicks off at 3pm and concludes at 7.30pm in time for the City of Perth Skyworks at 8pm.

The Celebration Zone attracts families, youth and seniors from a wide range of demographics and offers plenty of rides, activities and cultural group performances.
