Australia Day breakfast at Beachport

We've been caravaning by the sea this long weekend. It's back home today, then Izzy starts her first full kindy year tomorrow! 

On Sunday, I attended my first Australia Day breakfast ever, in Beachport. The breaky was delicious, it's a credit to the Beachport Lions Club and the perfect example that volunteers make the world go round.

Standing, singing and listening to the crowd sing the national anthem was awesome, followed by the presentation. I'll be sure not to miss another Australia Day breakfast if I can help it, just for the food alone!

How did you celebrate Australia Day?

An impressive young lady, Rachel Smith, won the young Australian of the year award,
and The Beachport Duck Race won the event of the year.

Mmmm, bacon!

    1. It was my first. I always thought I had to be up at the crack of dawn, but we moseyed on down there at about 8:30 and got a great breaky.

  5. I happened to drive into town and saw the huge crowd gathered in our parklands (which are picture perfect). I think its about 20 years since we last attended a breakfast there. Its a very social occasion!
