Northern Beaches Council presents Australia Day across the Northern Beaches.

There will be BBQ Breakfasts, thong throwing, face painting, live entertainment at Dee Why, Narrabeen and Newport.

The Warringah Aquatic Centre and Manly Andrew 'Boy' Charlton Aquatic Centre will host pool parties with a kids DJ, inflatable thong racing competitions, roving entertainment and plenty more!

Northern Beaches Council would like to thank all the volunteers for their crucial support to make these events happen for our community to enjoy. In 2018 over 500 volunteers from 37 of our local community groups helped to deliver the breakfasts, rides and activities across multiple event locations. Proceeds from all events are returned as donations to the participating community groups.
