7 Australia Day Essentials

The Australia Day Starter Pack

Are you ready Australia? There will be slip, slop, slapping. Sun, sand and why not throw in a sneaky Stone & Wood beverage to keep you cool.

To truly celebrate Australia day there are a few simple traditions that should be followed to maximise the good times. This normally includes some kind of body of water, a group of your very best friends and family, ice cold beverages and of course lamingtons…because what’s better than lounging back on your blow up pool toys, soaking up the sun and snacking on an Australian spongey icon.

No need to whip out the pen and paper, we’ve put together an Australia Day Starter Pack to ensure you get the good times rolling this Tuesday, 26th January.

Fist things first, protect that precious skin. You don’t want to go to work on Wednesday looking like a chargrilled tomato.

Towels are like gold on Australia Day. Keep yours close because towel snagging is a real thing…don’t say we didn’t warn you.

A locally brewed craft or international favourite will be keeping you cool throughout the day.

A barbecue is basically a right of passage on Australia day. Find award winning sausages and lamb cutlets in the market along with a range of vegetarian options.

Pineapples, watermelons and giant golden swans. Whether you’re using them to relax in the pool or float down the slip and slide, these Sunny Life blow up toys are another one to add to the checklist.
