Photos, video: Food, music festival Great Australian Bites at Raby Bay for Australia Day

RABY Bay has got a taste of the best the Redlands food scene has to offer at the Great Australian Bites food and music festival on Tuesday.

Families enjoyed live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, food stalls and games at the event, held at the Raby Bay foreshore park.

Meanwhile, the surrounding beaches were teeming with people taking advantage of hot, sunny weather on Australia Day.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Queensland government had partnered with councils throughout Queensland to host events which celebrated Australia's history, diversity and liveability.

"After a year of hardship, hard work and personal sacrifice, Queenslanders are ready to relax and celebrate," she said.

Redlands MP Kim Richards said the festival showcased the best of Redlands food offerings.

"The last 12 months have been incredibly difficult for workers and business owners in our community. This (is) a great opportunity to support local businesses," she said.

The festival featured stalls and marquee displays from local seafood trawlers, fresh produce farmers, wine makers, craft beer brewers and cordial makers, as well as bush tucker demonstrations and tastings, while local musical acts including musician Chris Tamwoy kept residents entertained.

Australia Day events were also held at Wellington Point, Mount Cotton and Capalaba.
