For over 25 years, Australia Day at Carss Bush Park has been the platform for a dynamic entertainment program showcasing great live music, diverse cultural performances, amusing entertainers and market stallholders selling clothing, novelties, crafts and food from around the world.
This year, a brilliant display of fireworks over Kogarah Bay at 9:00pm was enjoyed by event goers as well as Sydney-siders across our city’s southern suburbs. Families and friends gathered in their tens of thousands to this beautiful venue to enjoy the Australia Day Celebrations.
