Australia Day

In 2022, we observed Australia Day with a range of food trucks as well as free activities, live entertainment and ice cream at an afternoon event at Kensington Park from 12 noon to 4pm on Wednesday 26 January.

Council’s Citizenship Ceremony and Community Service Awards took place earlier in the day, from 9.30am to 11am at the Prince Henry Centre in Little Bay.

“The events give the community an opportunity to mark the day in a way that is right for them and take the time to rest and reflect with the people around them,” said Randwick Mayor Dylan Parker.

Kids had the chance to get their face painted, play snookball (a mix between soccer and snooker), get up close to some of Australia’s native wildlife and interact with roving entertainers at the Kensington Park event.

Music was provided by Soulganic and food trucks included Hut Dog, Algae Food and Wholly Schnitt. Ben & Jerry’s provided free ice cream for the event.
