The event will kick-off at 12noon on Tuesday 26 January with international food fare, family activities and live entertainment, before a fireworks finale just before 9pm.

Free carnival rides, crafts, sports clinics for kids, an animal farm and pony rides will provide the backdrop to a full entertainment program. Entertainment features live shows from professional musicians, local youth and multicultural music and dance performers.

An Official Ceremony will also start at 12noon, and will include a Local Citizens of the Year awards presentation and a welcoming ceremony of new Australian citizens.
