AUSTRALIA DAY SCHEDULE
There will be something for everyone at this FREE community event.
Kicking off at 6:30am at Jezzine Barracks, make sure you grab your mates, dress up in your best Aussie outfit and get involved in the Aussie Fun Run!
Held in conjunction with the Townsville Roadrunners, entry into the 5km run is a gold coin donation with all proceeds going to charity.
After the Fun Run, reward yourself with a FREE Aussie breakfast (for the first 500 people).
The formal ceremonies will begin at 9am and we invite the public to witness a traditional Defence Force flag raising ceremony and 21-Gun Salute. There will be a display of defence vehicles on the parade ground.
The Citizenship Ceremony will also be held under the pavilion from 10am and will be a great opportunity to welcome Townsville newest permanent residents to our town.
Make sure you stroll over the The Rockpool from 12noon for the Beach Day Out!
With live music from an awesome line up of local bands and roving entertainment, slip, slop, slap your way to a day of fun in and out of the water.
The Return It Recycle Regatta will provide plenty of entertainment with teams getting creative by designing their very own boat made from recycled materials and racing it around the Rockpool for their chance to win some awesome prizes!
