Skyworks – City of Perth
The City of Perth Australia Day Skyworks is returning in 2022.
Since its conception in 1997, Skyworks has become the largest community event in Western Australia and the largest Australia Day celebration in the country, attracting over 250,000 people to the foreshore. The day comprises of the Birak Concert (a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and communities), Air Show, Entertainment Zone presented by Lotterywest on Langley Park and Terrace Road and to conclude the day, a 30-minute spectacular fireworks display on the Swan River. Entertainment will be available to the public between 3pm and 7:45pm, allowing attendees time to find a viewing location for the fireworks at 8pm.
Skyworks at 8pm
The City of Perth Skyworks’ finale will see the sky above the Swan River explode into colour at 8pm, with Western Australia’s largest annual fireworks display. The pyrotechnic magicians at WA operated Cardile Fireworks have a variety of new tricks and effects to ensure the 2022 Skyworks will light up the City of Perth in spectacular style and amaze the audience throughout Australia’s largest & longest fireworks display. Thousands of fireworks devices containing brilliantly bright pyrotechnic pixels are loaded into volleys of mortar tubes set up and launched from 21 barges spread along the Swan River. Hundreds of manhours of delicate work is taken to ensure every single pyrotechnic effect is safely plugged into the worlds most advanced computer firing system, so that when it comes time to light up the night, they are all ignited and complimented with a music soundtrack. Tune in to mix94.5’s music soundtrack on your analogue radio or head to one of our speaker zone areas along the foreshore to make your Skyworks experience complete!
