Australia Day Celebrations

There was thong throwing, pie eating, music, bouncing castles, and plenty of relaxing at Australia Day events across the city.

There was also a serious side to our National Day celebrations with the announcement of Ian Allen as the Cairns Regional Council Citizen of the Year and about 70 people being nationalised.

Highlights of celebrations on the Cairns Esplanade have been captured on video below.

Celebrate what is great about our nation at any of the three Australia Day events happening throughout our region.  Or have a big day and do them all!

Australia Day 2014 will kick off first thing in the morning with a breakfast at Yorkeys Knob with great food and some even better entertainment.

The Esplanade in Cairns will be hosting a full day of stage entertainment and of course the good old Aussie BBQ lunch.

For anyone wanting to head further afield, there is an Aussie Arvo down in Edmonton from 2pm to 4pm.
