Australia Day

The Entrance

Celebrate Australia Day with a stunning ocean backdrop at The Entrance.

Enjoy an amazing mainstage line-up including local artists and headliner act, Glenn Shorrock. The kids can splash around in Vera’s Watergarden or enjoy amusement rides and activities.

There will be a free activities zone with a huge chess set, Mega 4, bowling, sack races and plenty more for the whole family.

Woy Woy

  • The Foreshore, Woy Woy

  • 26 January, 2-9pm

Be entertained with children’s activities, food and market stalls, community displays and a great main stage line-up including headliner, The Nevilles.

The popular Lanterns are back with some new and exciting community designs. Join in the spectacular procession of lanterns through streets of Woy Woy and enjoy the music from the main stage. Finish the night with a bang as the sky lights up with a beautiful fireworks display over the water.

To make this event more inclusive and accessible for everyone in the community, we will have an “Including You” accessibility tent set up. The tent provides a range of free to hire sensory, vision, mobility and communication aids and supports, plus a ‘safe space’ for retreat for people in the community living with a disability, their families and carers, as well as elderly people, parents with prams and others with limited mobility (from injuries or illness).

An Auslan (sign language) interpreter is booked from 3-5pm at the Woy Woy Australia Day event.
