“Athletes in the Australian Paralympic team have broken four world records and achieved an overall 81 medals, deserving nothing short of a heroes’ welcome back to Australia,” Mr Ayres said.
“City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore and I will host a special celebration to welcome home 50 of our Paralympic champions on Tuesday 4 October from 12.30pm at Martin Place.

“I encourage members of the public to come down in your green and gold and meet the superstars who have made this huge contribution to Australian sport.

“It’s a great chance for fellow Aussies to celebrate the rising stars of the future who have kept us enthralled with their performances these last several weeks.”
