Free Aussie breakfast at Budd Park

MURWILLUMBAH residents can start Australia Day the true-blue way with a free Aussie breakfast at Budd Park.

The annual celebrations, hosted by local service clubs, will kick off on Wednesday at 8.30am with a free sausage sizzle breakfast, damper and billy tea.

“We used to have it at Knox Park but this year we thought we'd take it to Budd Park, which backs onto the river,” Rotary's Chris Chrisostomos said.

“There will be lots of activities with tug-o-wars, sack races, egg and spoon races, toss the gum boot, cricket, and many more.”

A flag-raising ceremony will be held at 9.25am followed by an Australia Day address by National Servicemen's Association of Australia local president John Robinson.

Tweed's Australia Day Ambassador Steve Bastoni will then present the Murwillumbah Australia Day Awards to the recipients.
