Enjoy beach activities, grab a bite from one of the food trucks and watch some entertaining live music on this national public holiday. The festivities kick off at 4pm. The celebrations will conclude with fireworks from 8pm sparkling over the seaside waters.
It is fitting that the event be held in Redcliffe since it was here that the site became Queensland's first colony in 1824. Before long, it was abandoned for Brisbane.
Redcliffe remains recognised as the first European settlement in Queensland, first visited by Matthew Flinders on 17 July 1799. Australia Day celebrations are seen to reflect contemporary Australia and its our diverse society and landscape, outstanding achievements and to consider how we can make Australia an even better place in future.
