Australia Day in Brisbane leaves you spoilt for choice! With everything on offer, you’ll be in for a jam packed, fun filled day if you want to get to everything. Here’s a snippet of what you could be getting up to but be sure to check local sites for events as there are far too many for us to fit on one page!
Australia Day Festival
Southbank is where it’s at for some of the best Australia Day celebrations in Brisbane. The South Bank Parklands will be buzzing with excitement all throughout the day! There’s the traditional flag raising ceremony , the RAAF flypast and the twenty-one gun salute to kick things off with a bang (literally)! A day out filled with fun, food and friends, finishing with Fireworks … what more could you ask for?!
Check out where you need to be here.
Australia Day on the Green
Also at Southbank (so handy if you want to pop over to the fesitival at some point)! Head towards QPAC between 12and 7pm for some great Aussie food and a nice cold beer with your friends while you listen to some free live music!

Aussie Beach Party

Entertainment, food, live music and markets will keep you occupied for a while.
