The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo – Sydney – October 2019

The superb Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will be staged in Sydney in 2019 as part of a move to more overseas events as the sell out event in August continues to take advantage of increasing global demand.

The ANZ Stadium in Sydney’s Olympic Park will play host to the event between 17-19 October 2019.

The ANZ Stadium is approximately 16km from central Sydney and can be easily accessed by train (but a cruise is ideal as well!). It was the main stadium for the 2000 Olympics and since then has held many great events including Rugby Union Internationals, Rugby League Grand Final as well as a huge array of International

It is expected around 166,000 spectators will see the cast of several hundreds musicians and dancers perform against a backdrop of a full-size replica of Edinburgh Castle.

Brigadier David Allfrey MBE, chief executive of the Tattoo, said (in a press release for the launch of the event) : “The relationship between The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Australia runs broad and deep.

“We’re linked institutionally through the Commonwealth, the Scottish Diaspora, military bonds, shared history and experiences and so many individual friendships and family connections.

“It is a huge privilege for us to be invited to stage a Tattoo that stands to be bigger and more extraordinary than ever before.”

If your looking at heading to Sydney some useful tips

1. Base yourself at the heart of the City where the major attractions are (Circular Quay and Darling Harbour especially). Its still easy to access the stadium.

2. Get good tickets – well worth it if you are making the effort to attend.

3. Look at other parts of NSW – make the effort to go to the Blue Mountains, further on the waterways and explore the region.

4. Do the iconic attractions – Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Visit the Opera House, Cruise the Harbour, Walk the Botanic Gardens, wander through the Rocks and feel the atmosphere around Darling Harbour!
