Australia Day Evening Cruise onboard Silver Spirit  

This year’s Australia Day Live at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt and Circular Quay will be a night to acknowledge the Aussie spirit and celebrate our strength. Australia Day Live is a unique concert taking place both on land and water, featuring live musical performances choreographed to a flotilla of yachts, jet-skis and fly boarders and commercial vessels with synchronised pyrotechnics display on the harbour. The line- up will let the songs and lyrics tell their stories while creating an atmosphere of optimism and togetherness in a spectacular and heartfelt concert. It will be broadcast live on ABC TV from 7.30pm.

Not all the festivities are during the daytime, our Australia Day Evening Cruise is to view the fireworks and other displays. Silver Spirit is a participant in the lit parade within Circular Quay and will be in prime position to view the fireworks. Our Australia Day dinner cruise is all inclusive of food and drinks and limited to 30 guests.

The Australia Day Live spectacular returns in 2023 with choreographed pyrotechnics and maritime manoeuvres featuring a flotilla of lit vessels, jet skis, fly boarders and a parachute display, the concert finale of spectacular fireworks and light display will illuminate Sydney’s most iconic landmarks and harbour. The concert will be simultaneously broadcast live on ABC TV and iview.
