Events planned for Bribie Island, Strathpine and Redcliffe have been cancelled due to the anticipated severe weather. The Flag Raising & Cadet March will still proceed as scheduled.
Celebrate Australia Day in Redcliffe with plenty of free activities for the family. Come on down to Suttons Beach and enjoy a great range of activities including a DJ, beach games, kids activities, mud crab races, competitions, roving entertainment, amusement rides and fun in the water.
The 2013 event ambassador is Darren Lockyer. Darren Lockyer is regarded by many as the world's best rugby league player - and with good reason. He is the former captain of the Brisbane Broncos, Queensland and Australian Kangaroos. Lockyer has also scored more points for the Brisbane Broncos than any other player in the Club’s history. Come and see Darren at Fish, Fun & Aussie Sun between 10.00am and 12noon
