Redland community groups and organisations planning Australia Day celebrations can register their events for free on the official Queensland Australia Day website.
Queensland Australia Day Ambassador and 2018 Local Hero, Pip Russell, is encouraging all Queensland event organisers to register.
“Australia Day is a great time for Queenslanders to celebrate our lifestyle, communities and mateship. Whether your organisation is planning a barbeque breakie, a spot of beach cricket or a local fireworks display, be sure to register your event on the official Australia Day Queensland website so other locals will be able to join the celebrations,” she said.
The official Australia Day Queensland website will serve as the state’s go-to-guide for what’s on across Queensland on January 26.
Users will be able to pinpoint events of interest within a 10km radius of their location allowing local events and celebrations to be easily found and joined.
