How to make your Australia Day worthwile
So, Australia Day is coming up soon, and you're sitting there thinking, what should I do on Australia Day? In places like Sydney Harbour, there's scores of events happening. There's fireweorks and the Havaianas Thong Challenge, to name two prominent ones. However, sometimes a low key event is the best....Here are a few simple yet worthwhile things to do on Australia Day.


Having a barbecue is a great, simple idea and very Australian. You can host one for your neighbours, or go to a park and enjoy the outdoors. Perhaps you could even take a portable one to the beach and set up shop there.

The beach is almost always a great idea, the exception being when it is rainy. Australia is an island nation, which means that we are surrounded by water so beaches are numerous. Why not have a family day out at one of them?

Sport events, like a bit of fun backyard cricket or a volleyball match, is a fun way to spend the day. Why not use that cricket bat you got for Christmas and haven't used yet?

Here are a few ideas to liven up your Australia Day. In any event, have a great day, whatever you decide to do.
