Chuck on your double pluggers, slap on a broadbrim hat or dress as your favourite Aussie icon and head along to RiverFeast’s Australia Day Sunday Session.
With a bucking bull, a thong throwing competition and Aussie inspired food, there’s no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than in the Bundaberg’s biggest beer garden by the Burnett River.
Owners Karen and Greg Wittkopp are excited to reopen the gates on Sunday, 24 January for the first time in almost a year, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Karen said with the new year came a new direction for RiverFeast as they committed their resources to larger events, focused on hosting by-demand Sunday sessions.
She said RiverFeast’s Australia Day Sunday Session is an event for the whole family to take time together and relax by the beautiful Burnett River and lapping in the summer sun.
“We are truly excited to reopen, and we thought celebrating Australia Day would be perfect as it’s the Aussie thing to do,” Karen said.
“There will be food vendors with Aussie-inspired food, a thong throwing competition, and we want to see a few Kath and Kims, Steve Irwins and some Bananas in Pyjamas as we are encouraging everyone to come dressed in their favourite Aussie icon!
“Wear your thongs as it’s going to be a relaxing day taking in the Aussie atmosphere.”
As well as the chance to sit back and relax, there will be market stalls with handcrafted products from local artisans, face painting, and a variety of local musicians to keep the entire family entertained.
RiverFeast’s Australia Day Sunday Session kicks off at 11am, with eight hours of live music starting with easy listening, before the party starts with local singer Abby Skye Music, followed by Throwback who will play through until 7pm.
Due to COVID-19 legislation patrons must sign in electronically on the day, and it's advised to check out the Facebook event for updates.
