Across the nation, on January 26th, Australia Day is driven by hundreds of local community events, generating community spirit and a sense of togetherness for many Australians.
But you don’t have to join the crowds at an organised event to enjoy the day.
Here we list 5 cool ways to get into Australia Day that you can enjoy at home
- Backyard cricket party: It’s well known that many Australians, young and old, love a game of backyard cricket. So, this year, why not get you’re friends and family together for a backyard cricket party. Make it as big or small as you like.
- Come together over a multicultural feast: Celebrate the foods of the world by holding a multicultural feast. You’ll find your friends and family have all sorts of traditional recipes they’re just bursting to share. You’ll learn a lot and get to explore new tastes.
- Enjoy doing nothing: We’re all busy and there’s nothing wrong with simply relaxing at home doing very little if that’s what you need.
- Slip n Slide party: Get into some true Aussie fun by hurtling headfirst down the slippery slope of a Slip ‘n’ Slide. You’ll need a gentle gradient in your backyard with access to a continuous water flow, along with a slide (buy one or make it from a plastic tarp or sheeting)
But remember, a Slip n Slide that’s not slippery will lose its appeal very quickly, so don’t forget the eco-friendly suds and inflatable pool toys to help propel your guests.
A Slip n Slide is a great way to foster friendship and build memories…but take care not to injure yourself!
- Watch cricket or tennis: It’s the perfect time of year to sit back and enjoy a day at home watching the Brisbane Heat or the Australian Open tennis.
Whatever you decide to do this Australia Day make sure you keep cool and if you’re thinking about organising a larger sized party, consider hiring a refrigerated mobile cool room to keep your food and drink fresh so you can really relax and enjoy the day with your guests.
