You Beauty! Australia Day 2019 on the Northern Beaches – Your Complete Guide

Source: Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 22 Jan 2019
What better way to celebrate Australia Day than go to one of the many Council run events across the region.

This year has a great line up from Manly to Newport - so there is something for everyone.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said he is pleased to be celebrating all things we love about Australia.

“Australia Day is one of the biggest days on the national calendar. The day is not only to reflect on what it means to be Australian, but to celebrate everything great about this beautiful country of ours and acknowledge our history.

“Our line-up of events throughout the day means there is something for all ages. Remember to slip, slop slap and have a great day,” he said.

This year Northern Beaches Council welcomes Australia Day Ambassador, Nic Newling. Nic is one of Australia’s leading mental health advocates and will speak at the Australia Day events at Dee Why and Newport.

In addition to our usual Alcohol Free Zones, there will be a temporary 24 hour Alcohol Prohibited Area on all sand areas of beaches as well as the adjacent reserves within the Northern Beaches Local Government Area from 6am on Australia Day (26 January 2019) to 6:00am on 27 January 2019, including East Esplanade, Manly and Shelly Beach.
