Australia Day in Armadale alcohol free

In an annual Australian tradition, visit Armadale for an alcohol and smoke free Australia Day, a jam-packed evening of festivities and fireworks.

Secure your spot early with a picnic in either Minnawarra or Memorial Parks, and embrace this wonderful community in a hassle free carnival atmosphere.

Family Fun

There will be plenty of activities for all ages including:

  • A full program of live music, showcasing incredible local talent
  • Free face painting and roving entertainers
  • Free Water Fun Zone with slides and other water activities in Memorial Park
  • Free bubbleology and ‘Together We Can’ community sports in Memorial Park
  • And lots of Carnival Rides and choices of food vans to tempt your taste buds!

The Australia Day stage is located on Minnawarra Park. Starting at 5.30pm, the stage will present a plethora of live entertainment, many being fabulous performers from right here in Armadale!

At 8.30pm the highlight of the evening is the spectacular fireworks display, set to the all Australian soundtrack collated by our very own Heritage FM local radio and broadcasted on 107.3 FM. We recommend planning to stick around for even more fabulous entertainment following the fireworks. You will see Australia’s best Freddie Mercury tribute act who appeared on television shows Starstuck in 2006 and Australia’s Got Talent in 2011. For those who were fortunate enough to see Queen perform live during their reign, this will be a wonderful trip down memory lane.

Please note, for the safety of your furry friend and young children, dogs are not permitted at this event unless it is a service dog.

This is a family friendly, alcohol and smoke free event proudly sponsored by our Major Partner Lotterywest. Follow the Facebook event on the City of Armadale Facebook page for further details and more information on the public program.
