As the sky darkens, the lights of the Gasometer come to life
If you haven't yet been down to explore the Gasworks hub at Newstead, then consider making a visitation date with family and friends on Sunday 26th January for some Australia day fun, set to start from 10am and running through to the evening. While Gasworks stands alone as its own individual attraction, here are the reasons to visit and celebrate on Australia Day, 2014.

Gasworks Plan for Australia Day
JJJ's (that is Triple J's), top 100 will play through the speakers of the Gasometer until 7pm, so if you get to stay until at least dark, you will see the structure come alive at night with the gorgeous colours when the lights change every few minutes.

On the day there will be a pop-up bar, Hatch & Co providing an amazing array of Australian food and drinks for purchase on the day. The food served at the Hatch & Co Restaurant is absolutely fabulous, so I'm sure the food on the day will match the high standard.

For little kids and big kids, yes that is us adults who are allowed to go out and play too, there will be lots of entertainment including jumping castles, face painting, competitions such as a throng throwing, prawn peeling, mango eating and prize for best dressed.  And by the way, who said you had to be a little kid to get your 'face painted'

Face Painting - "who said face painting was only for kids"
Also planned are some giveaways/competitions and some amazing prizes such as an $800 pair of sunglasses from oki & oro and lots of other exciting prizes from other retailers.

About Australia Day

Your Comment
The lights on the Gasometer are interactive, so if you (or the kids) run around under the lights, they will react to you.
