This date being christened as 'National Maritime Day' and celebrated. Well for more informations, I may have to google search and provide.
Is the Sydney Australian national maritime museum only for kids? other stuff to do?
The maritime museum certainly does have exhibits of interest to adults. They often have special exhibitions on which are worth seeing. The war memorial will take you five minutes. It is not a war museum like the one in Canberra. The Chinese Garden will take half an hour to walk round if you dawdle but you could spend a day at the Australian Museum.
Two other museums very much worth a look are the Powerhouse Museum and the Sydney Observatory (which is run by the Powerhouse). The Observatory often runs night tours when you can use the telescopes. Taronga Zoo is one of the great zoos of the world and well worth a visit.
what are some facts about canada day?
Canada Day is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united two British colonies and a province of the British Empire into a single country within the empire called Canada. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally.
Most communities across the country will host organized celebrations for Canada Day, usually outdoor public events, such as parades, carnivals, festivals, barbecues, air and maritime shows, fireworks, and free musical concerts, as well as citizenship ceremonies for new citizens.There is no standard mode of celebration for Canada Day.
Canadian expatriates will organize Canada Day activities in their local area on or near the date of the holiday. For instance, since 2006, annual Canada Day celebrations have been held at Trafalgar Square — the location of Canada House — in London, England; organized by the Canadian community in the United Kingdom and the Canadian High Commission, the event features Canadian performers and a demonstration of street hockey, amongst other activities.
I hope this helps you.
