Australia Day Celebrations

By Kevin Kelly

The City of Bunbury’s Australia Day Celebrations is the single largest free event in the South West and for more than 22 years the greater Bunbury community, and visitors to the south west, have gathered together to celebrate our national day.

Australia Day celebrations reflect the essence of what it means to be an Australian: freedom, lifestyle, community, culture and a celebration of our heritage; and the City of Bunbury’s celebrations offer a variety of activities and entertainment for the whole family.

This year will be no exception. Held at the Bicentennial Square and Graham Bricknell Music Shell on Blair Street in Bunbury, the celebration offers a range of activities for everyone.

The Australia Day Program of Activities in Bunbury starts at 6:30am at the Silver Chain Australia Day Breakfast at Bicentennial Square. At 5pm a Family Concert will begin at the Graham Bricknell Music Shell followed by a Fireworks Spectacular on Leschenault Inlet, Bunbury Tower.

For more information, and to see the events throughout the day, please visit the website.
