With preparations in place by the Social Committee and the sun shining down, over 100 of our residents slipped on the sunshades, slapped on the Akubra, and slopped on the sunscreen eager to take part in the festivities and celebration of Australia Day 2021.
Starting with a delicious BBQ followed by icecream for dessert, everyone got into the spirit of the day by joining in the various games including gum boot throwing, hookey, quoits, lawn darts and more and took everyone back to the happy memories of their youth.
The main event of the day was the Beer Can Regatta held in the pool. Contestants had to follow the special "Ten Commandments" in order to enter ..... and no cheating allowed!!
There were many prizes during the day and one in particular for the best dressed "bloke and sheilah".
The day was definitely a huge success, with lots of laughs and enjoyed immensely by all. Many thanks goes to our fabulous Social Committee.
