Australia Day Skyworks

Aussies love their national day and thousands of people flock to the city to celebrate, making Skyworks one of the biggest Australia Day celebrations. Perth’s Australia Day celebrations culminate in a spectacular half-hour pyrotechnic display over the water near Perth’s Foreshore at 8pm. With celebrations also held at locations across the city centre, it’ll be hard to decide what to do and how to fit it all in.
