The World Series makes a first-ever visit to Australia for the season finale
Following seven months of exciting action around the globe, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series concludes with a first-ever visit to Australia, where two champions will be crowned in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans at Sydney Harbour.
All eyes will be on the reigning and 4-time women's World Series champion, Rhiannan Iffland, who will be hoping for a majestic homecoming to round off the season, while the men's title tussle will also be settled from the purpose-built 27 metre platform in the middle of the harbour. Spectators will be able to see all of the action on land on the Fleet Steps at Mrs Macquarie's chair or via boat
Officially the most Instagrammable place in the world for 2019, Australia scored top marks for its popular hashtag and geolocations on social media. Sydney itself is a sprawling city scape, with an abundance of beautiful landmarks and heritage sites, endless kilometres of beaches, a bustling cultural scene, unique flora and fauna and spectacular mountains all within moments of each other. It's also a foodie's wonderland, and the unique style and attitude of its residents adds a charismatic touch to it all.
The original Aboriginal inhabitants of the City of Sydney local area are the Gadigal people, and the Gadical Clan are one of about 29 clan groups of the Sydney metropolitan area, referred to collectively as the Eora Nation. The territory of the Gadi (gal) people stretched along the southern side of Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour) from South Head to around what is now known as Petersham.
Sydney Harbour hosts other iconic events including the Sydney to Hobart yacht race, the world-famous New Year's Eve Fireworks, Red Bull Flugtag and the Vivid Lights Show. This November, against the stunning backdrop of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, the cliff diving elite will be the headline act.
