Enjoy Australia Day 2019 at Bicentennial Park!

Published on 10 January 2019

Celebrate Ku-ring-gai’s rich multiculturalism on Saturday 26 January through music, dance and food at Ku-ring-gai Council’s free community event in West Pymble.

The annual Australia Day celebrations will include a citizenship ceremony, entertainment and games for the whole family.

Mayor Jennifer Anderson and Ku-ring-gai Councillors will welcome new Australians making their pledge as citizens and announce the winners of the Ku-ring-gai Australia Day Awards. Present at the citizenship ceremony will be Ku-ring-gai’s Australia Day Ambassador for 2019 Clyde Campbell, founder of the Shake it Up Foundation. The Foundation is raising funds to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. 

Following the citizenship ceremony, celebrations get underway at 10.30am until 2pm with plenty of entertainment and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Stars of the show are ABC TV’s Bananas in Pyjamas with their live stage performance. Bush band Reel Matilda, an Aussie reptile show and performances by Korean fan dancers will also feature. There are games hosted by the YMCA and amusement rides, sheep shearing, sheep dog demonstrations and roaming performers.

After the event ends at 2pm, the public are invited to the Ku-ring-gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre next to Bicentennial Park for an afternoon of pool entertainment and activities.

Council recommends catching the free shuttle bus from Gordon train station to the event as parking is limited.

Ku-ring-gai’s Australia Day celebrations are proudly sponsored by the YMCA, Savills, Vision China Times and the North Shore Times.
