What do people do in Australia on Australia day?

Australia day is a public holiday. People generally have a BBQ with some friends or family for breakfast/lunch/dinner or even all three!! Most people hit up the beach or the pool as it is usually around 40 degrees Celsius. Then the afternoon comes around and adults usually have a few (or a few to many) beers. The local council holds a fireworks and fair in the main street and everyone flocks to the event.

Its such a great day, each person celebrates it differently but this is what my family and lots of our friends do :D
