What an awesome way to celebrate the Australia Day long weekend – sailing, great food and drink, beautiful scenery and world class entertainment!
Our Waterfront absolutely comes to life over this weekend. I love seeing thousands of people enjoying our beautiful foreshore, visitors from afar as well as locals.
The international spotlight is on our great city for this event and it’s our chance to shine.
I’ve seen a few beautiful beaches and coastal cities around the world, but the glistening Corio Bay – when it’s dotted with yachts and the shore is alive with music and people – is certainly up there with the best.
So as Mayor I am proud to welcome you to our City and hope your enjoy your time
