It doesn't get more ‘Aussie' than Council's Australia Day Family Fun Day.
Each year family and friends can celebrate Australia Day at Council's major public Australia Day celebration.
The 2016 event offered a free sausage sizzle and plenty of entertainment and activities including: The Gladstone Municipal Band, Mayor's welcome, national anthem and flag raising ceremony, introduction of Council's 2016 Australia Day Award winners, Billy T & the Dampers (bush band and dancing), roving performers, Aussie kid's crafts, face painting, Qld Cricket demonstrations and interactive activities, free childrens' rides, free Gladstone Regional Council water bottles and water.
In addition to the Family Fun Day, a series of Council supported Australia Day Regional Events are also held.
These events are hosted by not-for-profit community groups and organisations funded through the Australia Day Community Events Donations round.
