Experience the real Australia! Mount Gambier is all about community, and we want our visitors to join us as we celebrate Australia Day.

Each year the City of Mount Gambier invites all members of the community together with visitors to Mount Gambier, to celebrate what’s great about being Australian at the Australia Day Breakfast and Awards Ceremony. This year we continue our tradition on Friday 26th January, 2018 at the Railway Lands, Railway Terrace.

It’s an early start at 7.30am, with  a $10 ($ for kids) breakfast provided by the Lakes Rotary Club of Mount Gambier. In true community spirit the proceeds go straight back to those who need it this year it will be the Regional Foodbank and Boandik Lodge. It is a relaxed morning with entertainment from local artists, including a group from our New Arrivals Program, after all like our nation, Mount Gambier has a diverse community with origins from across the globe.

Sustainability is important in our city so please bring their own reusable plates & cutlery, there is even a  chance to win a prize! .  Of course, it wouldn’t be Australia Day without the outfits and flags. Get into spirit, dress “Aussie” and make new friends and  celebrate all things Australian.

Official proceedings will begin at 9.15am with the flag raising and awards ceremony.
