Where Will You Spend Australia Day?

Make sure you've set aside Saturday January 26 for a day of fun and festivities - it's Australia Day, and the whole nation will be celebrating!

When it comes to deciding where you want to celebrate our nation's biggest moment, take a look at the following options for locations to suit everyone.

At home

If the thought of facing the crowds at a big event leaves you feeling exhausted, why not host your own party from the comfort of your own house?

Get a few people together to help plan your bash and whittle down the guest list to as many people as you feel comfortable hosting. When it comes to home decorating tips, think the classic green and gold for decor, plus hints of blue if you're feeling extra patriotic.

Make sure you've got plenty of food and non-alcoholic beverages to cater to all diets at your event. A few vegetarian dishes won't go amiss, along with plenty of tasty treats to help soak up any excess alcohol.

At the beach

Australians flock to the beach in droves on Australia Day, and soaring temperatures mean this year is unlikely to be any different. Blow up your inflatable thong, hit the waves and celebrate with family, friends and strangers alike.

When celebrating in the elements it's important to remember to stay hydrated and sunsmart. Put your zinc on, wear a hat and drink plenty of water to help avoid any nasty repercussions of a beach day out.

At a community event

There are plenty of community events to get involved in on the day, from family friendly park days through to big CBD bashes and everything in between. Check with your local council if you're unsure what's going on in your area.
