Australia Day in the Longreach Region

Every year we are celebrating Australia Day all over the region with events in each community.

Longreach has their awards ceremony in the morning followed by a free BBQ breakfast for the community and fun activities for the whole family at the Longreach Pool during the day. 

Isisford is starting the day with a free community breakfast followed by the awards ceremony and afterwards the community gets together for fun activities at the pool. 

Ilfracombe has their traditional cricket starting at 3pm in the afternoon and later in the evening the awards ceremony and a free BBQ dinner. 

In all our communities we also offer free seniors lunches for our elderly.
