I recently received residents letters from the Onkaparinga council regarding the January 26th Australia Day Bush Fair and Fireworks.

I have taken the kids in previous years and they really enjoy it:

On the morning of the 26th there is also the Australia Day Free breakfast at 4 locations within the Onkaparinga council area.
