Attend an official event

Decide what you want to see for the day – you and your family or mates can opt to watch concerts, fireworks, or parades. You can also choose to attend regattas, community barbecues, face painting, sausage sizzles, and musical events. There are so many options to choose from, as Australia Day is very much celebrated by the locals. What you really have to remember here is that you must do your research before going to an event – know the schedule, print a map, know what’s going to happen during the celebration, what colours to wear, and all that jazz. If you wish, you can even host your own party at home!

Simply wear “Aussie colours”

It can be as simple as wearing an ensemble or colour that signifies your beloved country. It doesn’t have to be limited to just clothes – you can also use face paint, temporary tattoos, whichever you prefer. The colours red, white, and blue signifies the Australian flag. If you wish, you can even throw some stars in there. Eucalyptus green and wattle yellow stands for the past colour schemes, and the colours black, red, and yellow stands for the Aboriginal flag.

Visit a different city in Australia

If you’ve been confined to your lovely city all your life, then it’s time to finally get out of your shell and explore the rest of Australia. Travel to a different city and discover the food, visit the well-known landmarks, or even learn their accent! If you belong in a large group and you need a car to travel, then try looking for a car hire in Sunshine Coast.

Whip up some wicked Australian meals

This day is the best day to give back and give thanks to everything that you have. You can simply donate to a charity of your choice and help the less fortunate people, so they can celebrate the day, too. You can give your old clothes, shoes, and bags, or you can share some of the food that you have on your table. Always remember that good karma is just around the corner!
