Australia Day 2016: Much to celebrate at Carss Bush Park

Australia Day 2015: Elvire Offerbeek enjoyed the festivities at Carss Bush Park. Picture: Jane DysonFOR more than 25 years Carss Bush Park on the foreshore of the Georges River has been the destination of choice for the annual Australia Day celebration.

The Kogarah Council-hosted event attracts thousands from far and wide who come to enjoy the melting pot atmosphere, food from around the world, entertainment for the whole family and market stall-holders selling clothing, novelties and craft.

The day-long event reaches a peak at 9pm with a brilliant display of fireworks over Kogarah Bay.

Market stalls open for breakfast at 10am.

The stage formalities begin at 11am with a citizenship ceremony to welcome 50 new Australians.

This section of the day also includes a traditional “acknowledgement to country”, official opening by the mayor Stephen Agius, a performance of the Australian National Anthem by Endeavour Harmony Chorus and the announcement of Kogarah’s 2016 Citizen of the Year and Australia Day ambassador.

Highlights of the entertainment line-up include a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show for the kids and a concert by country music duo Camille and Stuie who featured in one of the council’s sell-out Music at Twilight shows in 2015.

There will also be amusement rides and a 7D interactive cinema.
