If this doesn't celebrate Australia Day I don't know what will.


This is a family-friendly day attracting thousands of people to its various locations. The main goal at each location is to set the new world record for the largest number of giant inflatable Havaianas out on the ocean. The record was first set back in 2006 - and they've managed to beat it five times so far. Western Australia's the current record holder with 2093 participants.

This is official world record business - Guinness have some strict guidelines that must be adhered to. Read up on how you can help Mooloolaba claim the record here.Come on, Mooloolaba! You've got this. Not only that, but there will be plenty of activities planned, plus prizes and giveawaya.



While there's plenty of fun to be had on the day, there's also plenty of fundraising going on in the background. In fact, $10 from every beach registration is donated back to the local surf life saving club for each participating beach. For the Sunshine Coast, that's Mooloolaba SLSC.
