Experience our shared history at Sydney’s spectacular harbour headland park, Barangaroo Reserve this Australia Day with a range of free events. 

Barangaroo Reserve will host the launch event for Australia Day in Sydney. At 7:30am a fire will arrive in Marrinawi Cove, transported from Me-mel (Goat Island). A procession will escort the fire from Marrinawi Cove to Walumil lawns. A smoking ceremony will then take place at 7:45am to prepare for the symbolic WugulOra Morning Ceremony from 8:05-8:25am, with views of the Aboriginal and Australian flag raising on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

WugulOra, meaning ‘One Mob’ in the Sydney area Aboriginal language, is a special moment to begin Australia Day by acknowledging our shared history and Traditional Custodians. The ceremony will feature a dance performance by NSW Public Schools Aboriginal Dance Company, followed by Kari Choir singingthe National Anthem in local language. It will also feature 250 voices singing Budjari Gunyalungalung Baraya-la (‘Let’s Sing Good Dreaming’), as part of the Sydney Festival’s Bayala-Baraya: Sing Up Country program to reawaken and reforge the songlines of Sydney in a performance for Country, ancestors and healing.
