Australia sure does know how to celebrate and there is no better day to celebrate than Australia Day. Howard & Sons battled the uniquely Australian wild summer weather to ensure the skies shined brightly at night.

Australia Day celebrations in Sydney, Parramatta, Penrith, Bankstown, Newport, Whyalla, Semaphore and Fremantle all concluded with a spectacular fireworks finale by Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics.

The Australia Day Spectacular in Sydney’s Darling Harbour was produced by Andrew Walsh of Accolade Event Management and featured a spectacular multimedia tower in the center of Cockle bay.

Stuart Bensley designed a beautiful pyromusical that was choreographed with video, lighting, lasers, water effects and firejets all performing to a specially composed soundtrack by Felix Riebl of The Cat Empire fame. Pyrotechnics were fired from the truss tower structure, the main structure barge and thirteen pontoons.

The Penrith Australia Day Spectacular, produced by H20 Events, took mother nature’s big wet aquatic theme to a new level with pyrotechnics effects firing from the back of fast moving jet skis racing around the Sydney International Regatta Centre in choreographed patterns and a glittering Australian flag ski line.
