On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It's the day to reflect on what we have achieved together and what we can be proud of in our great nation "the land of opportunity". 

On Australia Day, almost all of Australians will attend either an organised community event, or get together with family and friends with the intention of celebrating our national day. Many more spend the public holiday relaxing with family and friends. 

What makes an Australia Day barbecue a true Aussie experience isn't just the thrill of the grill and the great Aussie produce you can put on it but everything that goes around it â€" your friends, family and the tunes the Triple J hottest 100 (kicks off around mid-day Saturday). Who will finish at number 1 this year? 2012 was Gotye and he went on to become a star around the world, will it be Perth's Tame Impala or Aussie rapper 360?.  

Who would you invite to your Aussie BBQ? 

My choices are…

  • WARNIE Maybe not the current "Pommie" version he is a bit of a toss 
  • PAUL REIFFEL: Will provide the backyard cricket umpiring
  • THE MELBOURNE VIXENS NETBALL TEAM â€"  Yeah. They are good fun...

Have a nice day and weekend.
