Sydney’s summer aquatic events – Guide

As hundreds of thousands of spectators converge on Sydney Harbour each year for the major summer aquatic events, Roads and Maritime Services is responsible for managing on-water spectator traffic and boating safety compliance during these events.

Special on water conditions apply for major aquatic events – including the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race start, New Year’s Eve and Australia Day – to allow them to be conducted safely and successfully.

Each year we enforce special boating rules during these events to help ensure the safety of spectators and contestants. These measures include: a maximum six knot speed limit; minimum wash areas; and exclusion zones.

We encourage boaters to get out on the water and experience the wide variety of events that Sydney Harbour hosts over summer.
