Come along to Australia Day breakfast at Griffith Pioneer Park!

The best way to kick off Aus Day!

Come along to Australia Day breakfast at Griffith Pioneer Park!

What could be better than sitting down for a delicious breakfast to kick off the Australia Day festivities? Not much! Griffith Pioneer Park Museum will be hosting a community brekkie from 7:30am-10am.

You don't even need to book! You can look forward to bargain breakfasts consisting of:

Light continental breakfast - $5
Full breakfast of cereal, fruit, bacon & eggs, tomatoes, sausages and toast - $10
Family full breakfast (2 adults & 2 children) - $30


Entry to the museum will be free of charge for the morning and there will be heaps of fun for kids - train rides and tours, old fashioned games and a jumping castle! 

It doesn't stop there! Jeff Gardner's Country West will be performing and staff will lead a bush dancing bracket at 10am. We'll also welcome this year's Australia Day Ambassador, Chelsea Bonner (founder of Bella Models) and Chair of the Australia Day Working Group, Councillor Christine Stead.

After breakfast, the Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony will be kicking off from 9:30am at the Regional Theatre.
