Feeling True Blue
Australia Day; a day where more than half of the country use this momentous public holiday to flock to our gorgeous beaches to sizzle like sausages in the sunshine. A day usually spent laughing, drinking and BBQ-ing with friends and family. Does that sound about right? There's nothing we love more then a bit of fun in the sun but this year, instead of hitting the beach, we've decided to stay and celebrate Australia's day of birth in our beloved Brisbane. From Vegemite burgers to South Bank beach BBQ's and gin-tastic parties, there's plenty to do in the city this Aussie Day.
