Damper, tea and a bush band added an authentic touch to the Australia Day celebrations held last Friday 26th January at the Bandstand Park. The mood was patriotic as thousands of local residents, dressed in green and gold and decked with Aussie flags, gathered together to celebrate what it means to be Australian.
Despite sweltering heat and queues the proud sentiments of locals were mutual and the day proved to be a popular affair. Councilor Peter Cumming and chair of the committee in charge of organising the celebrations was very pleased with the immense support shown by the community and the hard work of the volunteers who made the day possible. “It was very successful. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the free food and quality entertainment on offer made it a great day for families with young children” said Mr Cumming.
A giant jumping castle, slippery slide and face painting kept children busy while this years newest additions of snow cones and popcorn added novel variety to the usual free breakfast of pancakes, sausages and damper. The underlying message of the day however was not lost beneath the festivities.
“Australia Day, for me, is a chance to reflect on and truly appreciate how lucky we are to live in such a wealthy, peaceful and democratic country. It’s a wonderful place to be,” stated Mr. Cumming.
The Australia Day breakfast and entertainment is run by a committee made up of service clubs from the area including local Rotary clubs, the Lions Club of Moreton Bay, Scope, Red Cross and Quota.
