This weekend, the Palaszczuk Government is partnering with Bundaberg Regional Council to deliver Great Australian Bites, a food and music program showcasing Queensland’s regional and remote communities.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the event would be held at Neilson Park, Bargara from 1pm to 6pm on Australia Day, 26 January 2020 and would showcase fresh regional produce cooked by local chefs and featuring home grown entertainment.
“Australia Day is an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate our vision of contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history,” the Premier said.
“Communities large and small are the foundation on which Australia is built, and I encourage all Queenslanders, far and wide, to come together to celebrate on our national day.
“My Government is proud to continue its work on behalf of all Queenslanders promoting and protecting our State’s wonderful diversity.
“Australia Day is an opportunity for all of us to remember who we are and to consider how lucky we are to live in Queensland.”
More than 40 high-profile Queenslanders, including Queensland Greats, television personalities, entrepreneurs and athletes, will also be participating in more than 58 council-run events taking place across the State as part of the Australia Day Ambassador Program.
The Australia Day Ambassador Program and Australia Day Program of events and activities in Queensland are proudly supported by the Queensland Government in partnership with the Australian Government through the National Australia Day Council. Great Australian Bites events are delivered in partnership with Triple M and the hit Network.
