Aussie, aussie, aussie – make this Australia Day one to remember
Whatever the weather, Aussie’s love to celebrate all things Australian with friends and family on Australia Day. Here are some ideas to get your party planning off to a cracking start.
1. Table Setting
Red, blue and white are always fashionable when it comes to Australia Day and with the shops full of Australian paraphernalia it’s easy to get a fun table display going. Balloons, table clothes, lanterns, plates, serviettes and mini flags are always readily available for Australia Day celebrations.

2. Prawns on the Barbie
You can’t get much more Australian than this. Prawns on the barbie are a great Australian tradition. Serve them on some skewers as a starter but be sure you’ve got enough of these firm favourites.

3. BBQ hits
Okay, so I think you’ve guessed that it’s not an Australia Day celebration unless you’re throwing something on the Barbie. If prawns are your starter then be sure you’ve got lots of tasty lamb cutlets, steaks or burgers to go on the grill for the main course. But don’t forget the grilled vegetables. Not only are grilled veggies superb on the BBQ but they add colour to the meal when it’s laid out.
