Australia Day Celebrations!
It’s time for a day of snags and flags, of tinnies, barbies, and mates. Australia Day comes around this year on a Tuesday, leading many to consider a suspiciously long weekend away from the office to celebrate. If you’re looking for something to do on the day, Brisbane has plenty of options available – open to everyone from the budget traveller, to the family with kids.
No matter whether you’re a life-long Australian resident, or staying at hostels and here for a work holiday, everyone loves a good old celebration. The 35th Annual Cockroach Races will be taking place at the Story Bridge Hotel Kangaroo Point, only a short distance from Brisbane’s historic West End, and the cricket grounds at the Gabba. With everything from drink specials, to costume contests, and food trucks, there’s something for everyone – and let’s not forget about some racing insects! The little buggers hit the road at 12 noon, and there are over 14 races to be held across the day.http://www.cockroachraces.com.au/ http://www.storybridgehotel.com.au/
Perhaps a traditional Aussie pool party is more up your alley! Come and join us at Brisbane Backpackers Resort, you can expect a party of a day, complete with food and beverage specials including a $10 BBQ, and hot deals for a place to stay for travellers. Located in the lively and progressive West End, this hostel is the perfect place for the budget traveller looking to meet great people and have a quality hostel to call home for the evening. http://www.brisbanebackpackers.com.au/
Australia Day marks not only the founding of a nation, but is also the unveiling of Triple J’s Hottest 100 Countdown, as they dig through the best tracks from the most stellar musicians of the year. This makes for a fantastic soundtrack as you find your way down to Southbank to see the fireworks – starting your night with a bang at 7:30. http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100/14/
Get out there and enjoy the sunshine, the vibrant spirit of the nation, friends, and family wherever you may find yourself for Australia Day 2016!
