    If you can't find a meet up on here, pick a nice reserve grab the esky, some chairs and get there early for the shade, then it's a case of people watching.

    Oh and speak with the locals, you will learn a lot.

    Great relaxing day.

    Most community centres do a community breakfast which is free, then there are usually loads of activities planned for the day. Last year we went to silver sands beach which was an amazing experience, there were groups that had brought their entire front lounge to the beach - sofas, tables, tv, lamp - everything!!! And it was PACKED!!!! Cars were 5 deep more like a car park than a beach. This though made it hard for the kids to get to the sea for a dip on their own and sadly there was a bit of a brawl later in the day when the copious amount of alcohol consumed by the large groups of youths kicked in, which was defo our que to leave.

    Christies beach are having their annual fireworks display, there will be stalls and activities for the kids in the park on beach road and the fireworks get set off when it gets dark and that is always nice to go and see.

    Enjoy!!!

    Fireworks at Semaphore were nice last year. The year before that our local council was doing something as well, so always worth checking out what's going on locally.

    Why don't you start your own Australia Day tradition, we did many years ago. Invite your friends for an Australia Day BBQ, doesn't have to be fancy, sausages and tomato sauce are mandatory though. Make sure they are suitably attired with something displaying the flag. Do an award ceremony (make them up and give away cheap medals). It's compulsory to wear thongs, t-shirts and shorts with plenty of Zinc, ensure everyone has an esky, the cricket is on somewhere (radio or TV doesn't matter) and the kids have a sprinkler to run under. The friends you invite have to invite another friend of similar situation. Soon you will have a tradition. Goodluck it is my favourite holiday of the year because I feel very Australian.
