Australia Day in Sydney offers all the staples of a proper independence celebration (beer, fireworks, music, military flyovers) but it also hosts the oldest annual regatta in the world. You can take in the sights and sails while ambling from bar to bar along the waterfront, or get in on the action by booking a spot on a three-masted schooner taking part in the tall ships race. Nothing like winning a race with a glass of champagne in your hand.
