This Australia Day, members of Gatton and District Historical Society invite you and your family to celebrate the great nation Australia has become!
Sponsored by River 94.9 and the Lockyer & Somerset Independent, Celebrate Australia Day! Together Under the Sun! is shaping up to be a fabulous Australia Day extravaganza at Gatton Historical Village.
Come and enjoy a jam-packed afternoon of live on-stage and roving entertainment, kids activities, cultural workshops, fun Aussie-themed competitions and a classic film screening at sundown! Entry is FREE and all are welcome to join in the fun and festivities!
The event will commence at 2 pm with a Welcome to Country ceremony, followed by a flag-raising ceremony with the 2nd Light Horse Lockyer Troop.
During the afternoon, you can take part in First Nations workshops and demonstrations (bookings may apply) and the kids can have fun in the gumboot throwing, thong throwing and paper aeroplane competitions!
There will also be The Great Lockyer Lamington Bake Off, which will be judged by River 94.9's Saturday Start Up crew, Dave and Nicky and the chance to Dunk a Dignitary! Jim McDonald MP and Cr Brett Qualischefski are both willing to be dunked!
If you are looking for a delicious dinner, head to the global food trucks, which will have all your street food favourites and then settle in for a twilight screening of the iconic Aussie film, The Castle.
