The City of Perth Skyworks will light up the sky from 8pm (WST), with an Australian Spirit theme.
Internationally-known entertainer Rolf Harris will also contribute a "special feature" for the soundtrack.
But before the pyrotechnics begin, the city will also host free entertainment throughout the afternoon for families.
The Youth Zone concert at Langley Park will begin at 4.30pm with headline acts Amy Meredith and Stone Circle, as well as paintballing and cars.
Earlier, Survival Perth will be held in the Supreme Court Gardens to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
Aboriginal artists will perform music over six hours including Kwarbah Djookian, James Scott, Ulla Shay, Walkabout Boys, Bartlett Brothers and The Yabu Band.
Across the river, the City of South Perth will host Celebration Zone at Sir James Mitchell Park with various entertainment and activities.
For those south of the river, the City of Fremantle will celebrate Australia Day with a free sausage sizzle and entertainment, as well as face painting and giant bubbles.
Performers will include the Vegemite Dancers, Aboriginal Dancers, Sunshine Brothers and Blue Shaddy, and the Village Art Markets will also be operating at the Esplanade.
From 8pm, the Cities of Fremantle and Cockburn will co-host the Indian Ocean Skyshow, launching the fireworks from a barge 300m off the coast at Bathers Bay.
Spectators are advised to view the show from Bathers Beach foreshore, the Round House, Esplanade Park, North Mole, Monument Hill, South Beach and Fishing Boat Harbour.
It's expected to reach 40C on Australia Day so people are being warned to remain hydrated.
The Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA) warns those attending the Skyworks to leave the sparklers at home because they can easily start a fire.
Police will also be out in force to target anti-social behaviour and alcohol-fuelled violence.
Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan said there would be designated alcohol zones.
"Drinking outside the zones is against the law and offenders face a $200 fine," he said.
"Under the Liquor Act, police have the power to seize alcohol, even if its unopened, from anyone drinking and deemed to be causing or likely to cause undue offence, annoyance, disturbance or inconvenience to others."
Last year, police issued almost 50 move on notices and 23 people were arrested.
