Submitted by | 3,298 views
January 26, 2011 is Australia Day! This is an official national public holiday of Australia that commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland. 
While most Sydneysiders opted for famous beaches like Bondi Beach, Manly Beach, Cronulla Beaches, among others, we opted to go for a “barbie”picnic at Sydney’s Bi-Centential Park located beside the iconic Sydney Olympic Park. 

Yes, there were variety shows. From performances of young Aussie
singer-songwriters, Historical Dances, Aussie Country Bands,
to other international performances.
Even birds celebrate Australia Day!
I was really close to these birds when I took this photo

Plenty of Activities for the kids including this climbing ropes

Scooters are big hit for kids

The Beautiful lake at the heart of the park
A Beach Umbrella

Mini Fire Brigade Ride – A Free Ride for families

Jump the Line. Go to the End.
I like these kids who celebrate Australia Day by climbing trees
Australia Day is a celebration of culture and history

Plenty of Bouncy Castles around – Everything is free
Battling the heat with this umbrella provided at the park
