Australia Day at the Bay 2018

City of Holdfast Bay Deputy Mayor Amanda Wilson says Glenelg will be the coolest place in Adelaide to celebrate Australia Day, offering a true-blue beachside Australia Day experience, with an early community barbecue breakfast from 7am, official ceremonies from 9am to welcome new Australian citizens and celebrate local heroes, and a big, free family fun day on the Glenelg Foreshore!

This year’s Australia Day ceremony in Glenelg will welcome over 60 people from 13 countries, who will take the oath to become Australian citizens.  They will also celebrate local heroes as they receive well-deserved Australia Day Awards.

You are welcome to join in from 7am for the Kiwanis community fundraiser BBQ breakfast. Following the ceremony the community is invited to enjoy free activities until mid-afternoon on the Foreshore reserve such as live music, balloon twister, roving entertainment, giant games, Dig a Dino and face painting.

Australia Day at the Bay is a family friendly day by the beach!
