Bribie’s 12-hour Australia Day Extravaganza

January 24, 2014

Celebrate Australia Day with 12 hours of true blue Australian fun at Bribie Island’s annual Aussie Beach Party from 7.30am on Sunday January 26, 2014.

The nation’s day of celebration will kick-off at Brennan Park, Bongaree with a free breakfast courtesy of Cornett’s Supa IGA and Bribie Island Lions Club.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor, Allan Sutherland, said the Aussie Beach Party was an ideal way to soak up the fun and excitement of Australia Day in the Moreton Bay region.

“It’s a celebration of our nation, right down to the traditional barbeque breakfast,” Mayor Sutherland said.

“Located on the foreshore of Pumicestone Passage and Moreton Bay, it’s the ideal place to wet a line, have a swim or crack a century at beach cricket.”

Division One Councillor, Gary Parsons said a playlist of classic Australian anthems would be performed throughout the day by a host of Aussie DJs and musicians.

“Bring a picnic and get involved in the many beach games including sack and three-legged races, sand castle and thong throwing competitions,” Cr Parsons said.

Cr Parsons said a firework spectacular would light up the night sky over Pumicestone Passage at 7.20pm.

Moreton Bay Regional Council thanks sponsors and supporters of the 2014 Aussie Beach Party including Cornetts Supa IGA, Bribie Island Lions Club and Our Village Foundation.

A big part of the success of Bribe’s Australia Day celebrations is the ongoing support of the event’s sponsors, particularly the Cornett family who has worked in partnership with council over several years,” Cr Parsons said.

Toorbul Street (from the First Ave Service Road down) to the South Esplanade near Apex Park, will be closed between 5am and 9pm on January 26 for Australia Day festivities.
