Boxing Day is a massive public holiday in Australia, and the best thing about being in Sydney is that there are so many options for how to spend your day.
From sporting events, cinema releases, shopping sprees or family BBQs, Boxing Day is considered by Sydneysiders to be one of the best days of the year.

For sports lovers, The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race is a highlight on the sporting calendar, with teams from around the world navigating the tough conditions as they race from Sydney down the coast to Tasmania.
For cinema lovers, head to the movies and catch the biggest blockbusters of the year, which are released on Boxing Day. Boxing Day at the movies is the busiest day of the year, where millions of dollars are spent on catching these new releases, with many world premieres scheduled for this day.
After a busy Christmas Day, Australians often spend Boxing Day having a backyard BBQ or heading down to the beach for a day of relaxation. Although Boxing Day is a public holiday, most shops will be open, and public transport will run on a Sunday timetable.
