Australia falls on a Tuesday this year.
If you are one of the lucky ones who have the day off work then we have a few ideas on how to best spend Australia Day 2016.
bbq by the pool
Sphere residents kick back by the pool in the Aussie sun. Bring some nice ingredients down to the BBQ pavilions and have a lazy afternoon lunch.
picnic by the beach
Pack your picnic basket, blanket and umbrella then head to the flat side of the Spit. Relax on the sand under the shade of your umbrella then take a dip in the Broadwater.
Whatever one you pick, bring along your portable speaker to have the Triple J Hottest 100 on in the background.
