Malanda’s Big Pub will again host its annual celebration, featuring “Aussie” events like toad racing and thong-throwing, and the crowning of “Miss Aussie” and “Best Bogan”.

English Street and James Street will be fenced off to make way for the activities which include free face painting, and a DJ playing Aussie music all afternoon.

There will be a BBQ menu to choose from as well as Aussie pies. The event will kick off at 12 noon and go until 6.30pm.

Meanwhile at Millaa Millaa, an Aussie cricket match will be held in Lions Park as part of their event, which offers 70 free showbags for the kids, thong-throwing, live entertainment and the awarding of the Best Dressed “Bogan”.

The event starts at 11.30am and goes until 2.30pm.

At Kairi, the town’s hotel will be buzzing, with a lamington competition, thong-throwing and Aussie burgers for purchase. The event starts at 12 noon and wraps up around 2pm.
