Pack your picnic basket for Australia Day 2019

Published on 03 December 2018


There will be many opportunities to enjoy a picnic with family and friends around the Peninsula on Australia Day, Saturday 26 January 2019.

Mornington Peninsula Shire is again supporting community events in Hastings, Mount Eliza, Mornington, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento. With family-friendly entertainment and activities these events are a great opportunity to spend time together.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill said he is looking forward to seeing the community come together to celebrate the day and what it means to be an Australian.

“Australia Day is a special day enjoyed by locals and visitors, with community events offering a perfect way to enjoy a picnic and relax together during the summer break.

“It is a time to welcome our newest members and families to the community, with a citizenship ceremony held in Rosebud. We also look forward to the chance to celebrate the contributions made to the community by Australia Day Local Award winners.

“Whatever you do on this coming Australia Day I wish you a safe and enjoyable one,” said Councillor Gill.
