Make sure your phone is charged this Australia Day as Fairfield City Council have prepared a spectacular fireworks display to top off a day packed with fun and entertainment for the whole family.

The Fairfield Leisure Centre pool is the place to be as they host their annual Australia Day party. 

From 10am–4pm on Friday, 26 January, the whole family will be able to take advantage of free pool entry. Get drenched by the tipping bucket, play in the playground waterslides or groove along to the DJ. There is something for everyone with a 50m, 25m and babies’ pools open for use. Children under the age of 16 years will require supervision.

The Fairfield Youth and Community Centre has also organised free activities from 10am–3.30pm.

The Fairfield Youth Centre will be open and free so everyone can take advantage of this great facility to rock climb, trampoline and play table tennis and basketball. And of course nearby is our popular Adventure Park and Obstacle Course.

The Prairiewood Leisure Centre is also hosting a free pool party from 10am–4pm on Australia Day.

There is free entry to the pool where you will be able to groove along to the DJ. They have also organised a number of other activities and entertainment. Children under the age of 16 years will require supervision.

The fireworks will be held at the end of the day at Canley Heights Town Centre from 9pm, early enough for all members of the family to enjoy.
