Australia Day activities…

It’s not just a public holiday people! The 26th of January is a day to celebrate our awesome country and everything it contains. So, what will you be doing this Australia day?
Well, today the Australia Day website has released it’s list of events ( – Check it out here! – http://www.australiaday.vic.gov.au/events_melb.asp ) that start on the 24th of Jan.
If you want to see a very cute sight, head down to the Yarra on Australia Day to see around 30,000 yellow rubber duckies floatin’ along….Why? To celebrate 100 years of Surf Lifesaving Australia.
You can adopt a duckie for $5 which will automatically put you in the draw to win a new Mitsubishi car. All proceeds go towards lifesaving activities.

    The main thing that’s left off this list, I feel, is Triple J’s Hottest 100. Every year me and my friends have a barbecue, listen to the 100 and then go to the beach. Nothing more Australian than that!
