2012 Australia Day Boolarra Community Celebration

To celebrate our National Day and the wonderful spirit in our lovely town the Development Group has developed a tradition of having an Australia Day Breakfast in the Park which has gone from strength to strength.

From 8.30am until 10.00am in Railway Park we will be providing egg and bacon sandwiches, snags, tea and coffee and some drinks for the kids. We’ll raise the flag and sing the anthem, have some fun activities for all the family and generally have a good time!


  • Commence breakfasts 8.30 am
  • Commence activities: 9.00 am
    * Hopscotch * Skipping * Quoits * Sack Races * Gumboot throwing
    * Talk to friends you haven’t seen since? * Australiana trivia
  • Flag raising 9.40 am
  • Present certificates 9.50 am
  • National Anthem 10.00 am

One of the great features of our celebration has been the opportunity to recognise some of the unsung heroes of our town; the volunteers who do so much in so many spheres to make our town the rich and vibrant community it is.

The Development Group is once again seeking nominations from individuals, community groups and clubs of people or groups you believe deserve recognition for their contribution to our community. If you wish to nominate someone then please fill out the attached nomination form and drop it in at the Post Office.

If you’re free to give a hand on the day, please give me a call. It’s a great way to meet people if you’re new to the community.
