Everyone is invited to show their patriotic spirit next Tuesday in recognition of Australia Day by participating in special activities across the region.

Bundaberg Regional Council’s official Australia Day celebrations will be held at the Botanic Gardens from 9am to 12.30pm, where the Bundaberg City Daybreak Rotary Club will host an Australia Day Fun Day.

Community Services Portfolio Spokesperson, Cr Judy Peters said the celebrations would include a plethora of fun competitions and activities, as well as the opportunity to meet local achievers who have been recognised with Australia Day Awards.

“The Official Welcome and recognition of the Australia Day Award Recipients will commence at 10am outside the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, which will be offering reduced entry prices and a complimentary ticket into Fairymead House,” Cr Peters said.

“As it’s a day of celebration, we’re encouraging people to have fun and take part in competitions such as thong throwing; lamington-eating; pie-eating; three-legged races and enjoy billy tea, damper and bush poetry.

“Buses will be available from the Bundaberg Post Office to the Botanic Gardens, leaving at 8.30am, 9am, 9.30am, 10am and 10.30am and returning from the gardens to the post office at 11.30am, 12pm, 12.30pm and 1pm.”
