Get Set for Australia Day at The Strand
Australia Day is just around the corner on January 26. Whether you’re hosting an Australia Day party, or looking for ideas for the perfect Australia Day in Coolangatta, you’ll find everything you need at The Strand at Coolangatta.
It wouldn’t be Australia Day without a good old sausage sizzle. Take the classic favourite to the next level with award-winning sausages from Meat Merchant and freshly baked bread or rolls from Sunbaked on Level 1.
Need fresh lettuce for your burgers or a delicious fruit plate? Find locally sourced produce at market prices from Strand Fresh Fruit, and grab some healthy platter fillers including dips and crackers from Healthy House Coolangatta. And of course you’ll be able to pick up a 6 pack from Cooly Liquor!
Look the Part
From singlets to stubby holders, flags and decorations, find a treasure trove of Australia Day paraphernalia at Nic Nax Discount Variety at great prices.
If you’re celebrating Australia Day in true Southern Gold Coast style, you’ll probably find yourself at the beach or by the pool. For the ladies, head to Sunburn or Beach ‘n Beyond for the latest swimwear styles, Ritzi or Esteems Boutique for over swimwear fashion and for the gents, Boardriders Coolangatta and Stock and Supply will have you covered.
Join the Fun
There’s plenty of reasons to head to Coolangatta for your Australia Day celebrations.
Have a hit any time at the Coolangatta Beach Volleyball courts, brought to you by The Strand. Bring your own ball or buy a great value volleyball from Nic Nax to make the most of these free facilities.
Heat up the BBQs in the park, have a picnic on the beach or dine in and let one of the restaurants at The Strand do the cooking. Check with individual restaurants for public holiday trading hours.
To top off the perfect Australia Day in Cooly, grab a scoop or two of Gelato Messina and cool down with the ultimate summer treat.
If you’re looking to dance night away, head to the Coolangatta Hotel, with 10 hours of free live music from Fat Albert and Alter Ego’s from 2pm.
