How are you celebrating Australia’s Day in the Tweed?

ACROSS the Tweed, residents have donned their best pair of thongs, togs and found their favourite stubbie holder.

The outfit is almost as iconically Australian as the internationally famous red-and-yellow uniforms of the surf lifesavers patrolling our beaches.

As Australia Day celebrations have kicked off across the region, people like 16-year-old Eliza Lovett will be hanging out at Salt Surf Life Saving Club ready to rescue revellers in the water.

However it's not all work and no play - the afternoon will see club members come together for a barbecue and backyard cricket, plus lamington and pavlova desserts.

Eliza said the surf club, which opened a year ago, was always looking for more members, with social membership available from $20.

"We are family-orientated and are a bit different because we hold nippers at 2pm on a Saturday," she said.
