Australia Day is the nation’s day to celebrate what’s great about living in Australia and being Australian.
The Gunnedah Shire celebrates the national day with a variety of free community activities for all residents and visitors to share.
Celebrations begin in the lead up to Australia Day with the Australia Day Awards Dinner being held the night before, so all the community have an opportunity to attend the many planned activities on the programme.
The day starts early with triathlon events, combined church service, free family breakfast sausage sizzle, raft and craft Race, PCYC duck race, people and pets parade, cake bake off, chess game, dash for cash, athletic events and a free movie screening of Blinky Bill will be on at The Civic Theatre mid afternoon.
Gunnedah’s Australia Day Programme varies from year to year and is made possible by Gunnedah Shire Council and the many great volunteer organisations they have in Gunnedah.
