Harmony Festival

SYDNEY,NSW
Rolex Sydney Hobart
Yacht Race
DECEMBER 26-31, 2017

The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, one of the world’s most respected ocean races, is not just about sails and speed – it also lends colour, activity and an exciting carnival atmosphere to Sydney and Hobart. Sydneysiders can come along on Boxing Day to watch the harbour fill with race yachts and spectator craft; you can get close to the action on a cruise or the public Manly ferry as it crosses the harbour, or look on from the grassy shores of Watsons Bay. Why not make a day of it and pack a picnic? If you’re in Hobart, go check out Shipwright’s Arms (locally known as ‘Shippies’), just a 15-minute walk from the docks. The classic pub is filled with race memorabilia

Pasts guests have included Missy Higgins, Pete Murray and The Cat Empire, to name just a few. The festivities take place on 500 acres of rural land among a forest setting, for a true folkish feel. The festival ends on New Year’s Day with a great spectacle of dance, music and fire, where over 20,000 people converge on a grassy hillside to witness the event. Quite a way to ring in the new year!
