Locals will be celebrating across the Spencer Gulf this Australia Day!

In Port Pirie locals can venture down to the Solomontown Foreshore for a watermelon eating competition, family fun activities and a jumping castle! There will also be a flag raising ceremony kicking off at 8am.

In Port Augusta a free community breakfast is on from 7:30am, followed by the Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony and awards, as well as the cutting of the 26’ers cake.
