About Australia Day
Australia Day is the official national day of Australia and is observed each year on the 26th of January. This celebration marks the landing of the British navy at what we now know as Sydney Cove in 1788 and raising of the Union Flag. Today the celebration reflects the modern history of this great nation, it’s diversity and its present status on the world map.
As a national holiday there are many public events including outdoor concerts, community barbecues, sports competitions, parades, boat races, festivals, and fireworks across the whole of Australia including major cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.
Many Australians head to coast to spend the day on the beach; and it is a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. With so many Australian people living abroad there are also celebrations as far away as London, Dublin, and Singapore.
Classic Australian catering is often seen as having a good barbecue with sausages, shrimps, steaks, kebabs, and lamb chops. Look for catering suppliers and restaurants that can supply themed menus, or even outside catering such as a food truck. Beer can be an important part of Australia Day celebrations, so larger events would benefit from a mobile bar, or even a session of beer tasting with a professional beer taster.
If you are looking hiring live entertainment for your party; consider a band that could play Australian classics such as "True Blue" by John Williamson, "Down Under" by Men At Work, "Khe Sanh" by Cold Chisel, "Beds Are Burning" by Midnight Oil and "You're The Voice" by John Farnham.
