Australia Day Live on ABC – As the sun sets on our national day, the Australia Day Live concert from the Sydney Opera House forecourt and spanning Circular Quay is just getting started. This inspirational concert brings us together through storytelling, tributes and sensational entertainment.

Australia Day Live showcases musical performances from our nation’s best talent complemented by a dazzling watercraft extravaganza of yachts, jet skis, fly boarders, and parachutists dropping in to join the fun. All this along with Sydney’s iconic landmarks and harbour create an incredible backdrop for a brilliant fireworks and light show.

The two-hour spectacular is produced by the NSW Government and Australia Day Council of NSW with creative direction led by musical maestro John Foreman OAM together with the multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist William Barton.

Australia Day Live will be hosted by John Foreman, Casey Donovan and Jeremy Fernandez and further information on the line-up will be announced in January 2024.
Since 2016, Australia Day Live at Sydney Opera House has proven to be much more than a concert; it brings us together on our national day to reflect, respect and celebrate the Australian spirit and the best of who we are.
