Australia Day will be celebrated next Thursday (January 26) and in Tasmania preparations have begun for some wonderful events right across the state.
Early risers should appreciate the variety of functions scheduled for the morning, with locals and guests able to come together at a number of different venues for a delicious meal and the chance to enjoy some great entertainment.
The Australia Day Breakfast hosted by the Waratah-Wynyard Council is an invitation for the community to come along and celebrate the birth of the nation as we know it.
It will take place in Richard Gutteridge Gardens, with the Wynyard Lions Club serving scrumptious bacon and egg rolls. Guests can also tuck in to billy tea and damper with traditional Aussie spreads.
Kids will be entertained by face painting and a variety of games, while adults can join the tug-of-war challenge after their hearty meals.
At the Bellerive Boardwalk there is also a fantastic breakfast event taking place with a craft tent for the kids, along with the raising of the flag and singing of the National Anthem later on.
