On Australia Day, we come together as a nation to celebrate our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future.
It is also a chance to reflect on our nation's history, and to consider how we can make Australia an even better place in future.
This year, the community came together to celebrate Australia Day at the City of Ryde's annual family concert at North Ryde Common.
There were rides, sports, food trucks and a great line up of entertainment including Battle of the Bands and ended with a spectacular firework display at 9 pm.
- An exciting addition to the 2018 Australia Day lineup is the City of Ryde Battle of the Bands competition, where the top 3 finalists competed for the 2018 title.
- This was followed by 'Jay Parrino & The Rockers of Oz', and Spencer Jones from The Voice 2017.
