Council is gearing up for a bumper Australia Day on Thursday 26 January 2023.

The day kicks off with the Aussie Fun Run from 6:30am, with registrations for the 5km run through Jezzine barracks opening from 6am.

There will also be a free breakfast (for the first 500 people) at 8am before the official State Flag Raising Ceremony from 9am.

The Aussie Beach Day Out festivities will then get underway from 10:30am until 2pm along the Strand from the Rockpool through to Strand Park, with Council encouraging people of all ages to come down with family and friends and enjoy a wonderful day of fun outdoors.

There will be something for the whole family to enjoy at this free event with live music, roving entertainment, food trucks, a classic cars display and a BBQ sausage sizzle.
