Australia Day Celebrations

Australia Day celebrations

This Australia Day, the City of Bunbury presents to the community the all new Summer Scenes event, which will take place at Bicentennial Square on Tuesday 26 January from 4pm.  Featuring Australian films suitable for all ages on two big screens, sit back on one of the bean bags provided or bring your own blanket or low chair along.  The movies to be screened are Blinky Bill, Paper Planes, and Strictly Ballroom.  No need to book a ticket, simply come along and secure your spot for this free event.


Grab a bite to eat or a refreshing drink from one of our local and visiting food trucks or join in on an array of fun and quirky free activities including dodgeball, sand sculpture display and workshops, and outdoor carnival style games.

The COVID safe event will follow State Government COVID-19 guidelines including hand wash and sanitiser facilities available and we encourage event attendees to practice physical distancing.  All attendees are asked to check in at the event through the SafeWA app.

We look forward to the new-look Australia Day event where you can kick back, relax and enjoy the celebrations.
