Harbour Bridge Party – Saturday 19 March

Campbells Cove is the place to be this weekend, as Sydney celebrates the 90th birthday of the Harbour Bridge.

The event kicks off at 10am with a Welcome to Country by Uncle Allen Madden, before the Bananas in Pyjamas take to the stage live.

From 10.50am families can try their luck at 1930s street games like Capture the Flag, checkers, and hopscotch.

Apple the Magician will dazzle the crowd with spellbinding 1930s magic tricks and families can also wander through a vintage car and bicycle display.

In the afternoon, Aria-Award winners James Morrison, Tex Perkins, Bjorn Again, and Christina Anu will take partygoers on a musical adventure through the decades.

Don’t miss Jem Cassar-Daley’s special tribute to the Bridge and Sydney’s Harbour at 7.30pm.

Celebrate the Sydney Harbour Bridge turning 90 this weekend at Campbells Cove.

Tom Carroll at the Orpheum – Monday 21 March
