There will be plenty of entertainment on offer this Australia Day, with six celebrations scheduled across the Northern Beaches.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said he hoped the community would come together to celebrate our diverse nation.   

“Australia Day is a wonderful time to spend extra time with family and friends and give thanks for our beautiful country.

“Don’t miss the chance to come along to one of the great events on offer and enjoy a great community atmosphere,” Mayor Regan said.

BBQ breakfasts will be kicking off at Dee Why Beach at 7am, Newport Beach at 7.30am and Lakeside Park at North Narrabeen at 8am with entertainment including camel rides (Dee Why Beach only), amusement rides, thong throwing competitions, face painting, live music and more.

Warringah (9am - 12pm) and Manly Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton (12 - 3pm) aquatic centres are hosting pool parties featuring the ever-popular inflatable obstacle courses and a family friendly DJ.

Glen Street Theatre will also host Australia Day Awards and a citizenship ceremony to welcome our newest citizens to the Northern Beaches and acknowledge the achievement of local heroes.

Australia Day ambassadors appearing at the events include the 2017 NSW Young Citizen of the Year Arthur Alla (Newport Beach) and Rugby League Great Peter Wynn (Glen Street Theatre).
