If you're looking for somewhere with lots of things to eat, see and do this Australia Day, maybe punch Pine Rivers Showgrounds into your GPS. Only 20 minutes from the CBD, this year's Multicultural Australia Day promises to have something for everyone (including plenty of parking!).

If you prefer to take public transport, detrain at Lawnton Station, cross to the other side of Gympie Road and walk back towards Strathpine Station. The walk will take about 5 minutes.

There will be lots of food stands and trucks at the festival, showcasing menus from all over the world. There will also be a number of market stalls, reinforcing how popular these are becoming on Brisbane's northside.

Rides for the kids will be out in force, with favourites such as dodgem cars, remote controlled Monster Trucks, the Giant Slide and the Teacups to name a few.

There will also be a wide range of children's activities available, such as face painting, giant board games, colouring in books and more.

Live dancing and music will be a main feature of the day, with the first performance by a local Indigenous Australian dance group. There will also be dancing from Pacific Islander, Asian, Indian and Caribbean groups. The music should be impressive, with country and rock bands to play, as well as local musicians and poets.

So come on down to the Showgrounds on Australia Day. If it's a hot one, look out for the hydration stations and ice cream vendors. And if it's really hot, just remember that the Emily Seebohm Aquatic Centre in Fitzgibbon is open from 9am-5pm on Australia Day, if you feel like a quick dip before the festival starts. It's about a 5-10 minute drive from the Showgrounds, depending on traffic.
