Australia Day Concert and Fireworks
Celebrate Australia Day with family and friends at a concert featuring some of the country’s most popular music acts. The free twilight concert will be held on Monday 26 January 2015 from 6pm to 10pm at the Whitehorse Civic Centre lawns (Soundshell Stage), 379-397 Whitehorse Road, Nunawading.
Last year’s concert featured children’s favourites the Mighty BuZZniks; Australia’s Got Talent starlet Bonnie Anderson and The X Factor’s Andrew Wishart; Van Morrison tribute band Into the Mystic with singer Joe Creighton; and Tina Turner impressionist Rebecca O’Conner. Details on 2015 acts will be announced soon.
The concert will draw to a close with a spectacular 10 minute fireworks display that can be enjoyed from your seat on the Civic Centre lawns or watched on the Big Screen. For 2015, an additonal big screen will be placed behind the Whitehorse Centre theatre to cater for those that are not seated on the main lawn.
The Whitehorse Australia Day Awards will be presented earlier in the evening, along with a special citizenship ceremony to be held in the Whitehorse Centre theatre prior to the concert.
Free rides and amusements will be available from 4.30pm. Food stalls will operate from 5.30pm onwards.
Please note, parking for the event will be extremely limited and public transport is the recommended form of transport. A dedicated bicycle parking area will be available for the public (next to Nunawading Police Station).
