Australia Day Friday 26th January 2018
Despite the warm weather 609 people attended the Roxby Downs Australia Day celebrations on January 26th. A few hundred sausages & eggs and several kilos of bacon were consumed and the Zooper Dooper ice blocks were a hit with the kids. It was great to see so many people at the Roxbylink Pool celebrating in great Aussie style.
