Aussie-themed games part of Australia Day event

Reclink Australia Street Game and National Sports Bundaberg Tataina Quinn, Aiden Meldrun, Tai Meade, Josh Quinn and Rotary's Moe Turaga (back) practising for the Australia Day 2020 games.

If you are a fan of games then you won't want to miss out on all the fun at Great Australian Bites event this Australia Day.

Hosted by Rotary Club City of Daybreak, Nielson Park will be brimming with activities for the whole family to enjoy on Sunday, 26 January.

Club president Moe Turaga said all of the classics will be set up on the day, including giant Connect 4 and more.

“We are very thankful to have the amazing team at RecLink Australia Street Game and National Sports Bundaberg who are providing all of the activities for the day,” he said.

“Families can get involved in all sorts of fun, from tug of war, ball games, egg-and-spoon races and thong throwing, just to name a few.”

RecLink ready for all the Australia Day action

RecLink's Tataina Quinn said the team were very excited to be part of the event and hoped to see a good crowd of people ready to have fun.

“This is all about being part of some fun, friendly competitions that bring everyone together, and of course, participating in the great Aussie tradition of cheering for teammates,” she said.

A favourite among the many games RecLink provided was always the Bushman Challenge, according to Tataina, who said the Aussie game was always good for a laugh.

“It's a team challenge of who can put the tent up first,” she said.

“It’s great to watch complete strangers work together under pressure of what we all love doing when we go camping, setting the tent up!”
