Australia Day at South Bank

January 26. 2020

2:00 pm - 7:40 pm Free
Australia Day Fireworks at South Bank streets beach, families watching Australia Day fireworks

Head along to celebrate Australia Day at South Bank. In addition to all the usual family-friendly attractions at South Bank, it will also be the location for live music and the Australia Day fireworks!

The fireworks displays at South Bank are always spectacular, and definitely something to add to your family bucket list. You may even like to make it an annual tradition like many Brisbane families already have!

Expect to see the sky glowing green and gold as an all Aussie sound track accompanies the fireworks in celebration of our National day! This year over 25,000 fireworks will light up the night sky in a 10 minute display that will see fireworks fired from five barges, located between the Victoria and Goodwill Bridges. The fireworks begin at 7.30pm on Australia Day, and the best vantage point is along the Clem Jones Promenade, the Cultural Forecourt and River Quay.

River Quay will be the place to be as it hosts Australia Day on the Green. With an amazing line up of quality Aussie musicians, the whole family can listen, dance and chill on the grass from 2pm through to 6pm, making it the perfect pre-fireworks show entertainment. Birdman Randy, The Ivory Street Preachers and special DJ’s will take to the stage to entertain the masses. Bring your picnic rug, chairs and a picnic to make the afternoon a little more comfortable!
