Magistic Cruises commemorates the making of a great nation on 26 January with its luxurious 'Australia Day Cruise' that gives you ring-side seats to an amazing line-up of Sydney Harbour activities that inspire national pride. Why not celebrate the coming together of people and patriotic sentiment with a delightful four-hour cruise aboard a luxury catamaran and experience up close Australia’s nationalistic fervour?
January 26 being a public holiday gives you the opportunity to indulge in the great outdoors and celebrate with the rest of the community. Sydney Harbour hosts some amazing events that include the great Ferrython, the Tall Ships race and aerial flyovers. All you have to do is head down to the harbour to revel in the spirit of being truly Australian!
From the decks of the Magistic you get to see the flagging off and the culmination of the colourful Ferrython that pits four of Sydney's Ferries in a race against each other from Fort Denison to Harbour Bridge. It a brilliant sight to see these four brightly decorated First Fleet Ferries battling it out to be the first ferry that crosses the Harbour Bridge.
And, there's no better viewing gallery than the decks of the Magistic to watch the Harbour Parade, as vessels of all shapes and sizes decorated with national colours and flags, cascade down the glistening waters. Yachts, boats, tall ships, barges, cranes, ferries and tour boats participate in the parade all dressed up, vying for the title of 'Best Dressed Vessel'.
At noon, the Armed Forces call the shots to commemorate the Federation of Australia with a 21 Gun Salute near the north side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You can also join the synchronised choirs in singing the national anthem.
As you enjoy your drinks and feast on a delectable meal, you can watch the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force pay tribute to Australia with a flamboyant ceremonial display.
From the decks of the Magistic, you'll hear the Royal Australian Air Force Hawks before you see them coming. Treat your eyes to a Seahawk aerial handling display and an awe-inspiring aerial flyover by the RAAF Hornets that completes the Salute received by a host of dignitaries.
The regal 'Tall Ships' of yesteryear race from Bradley's Head into Sydney Harbour reliving their historic journey in all pomp and splendour and finish with a flourish under the 'coat-hanger' in just an hour or so.
In the evening, Darling Harbour transforms itself into a hub of activity as it hosts a concert followed by spectacular lights and music that bring Australia Day to an eventful end.
Australia is what is today after climbing a mountain of trials and tribulations that resulted in all Australian States and Territories joining hands to celebrate Australia Day on January 26.What better way to commemorate that glorious day hundreds of years ago when Captain Arthur Phillip first touched base at Sydney Cove with the first fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain!
