Could it get more Aussie than this? Daryl Braithwaite and Kate Ceberano are headlining a 15-hour party in the park

City of Parramatta is hosting a huge party on January 26 with Sydney’s biggest hot air balloon display and a main stage of Aussie music.

The Australia Day event kicks off at 6am (and runs till late) with a three-hour display of hot air balloons, plus kids’ rides and family entertainment.

Aunty Jacinta Tobin will give a traditional welcome to country, there’ll be a Big BBQ competition, a CARnivale display and a spectacular fireworks display at 9pm.

But the big headline act is Daryl ‘The Horses’ Braithwaite and Kate ‘Pash’ Ceberano. Also on the music line-up is kids’ favourite Hi-5, Busby Marou and singer-songwriter Teischa. The Red Bull Stage and Bar will feature an all-female line-up of emerging Western Sydney DJs Alexandra Falk, Gozo, Nicole Hamblin-Walker, Yemisul and KT Kosmic.

In addition, there’ll be brand-new Aussies made on the day as the Council’s Australia Day Local Awards and Citizenship Ceremony will be held at Old Government House from 9-11am where 24 residents will receive their Australian Citizenship.

This is a really relaxing day out - Parramatta Park is so big a lot like Centennial park. There's always great live music too. Good with mates and good too is you have mates with kids (I do!).
