Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By JIM ALOUAT

LO­CALS are ready to cel­e­brate Aus­tralia Day in style with plenty on of­fer around the Childers re­gion.

Kick­ing things off on the eve of Aus­tralia Day is the much-loved Paragon The­atre with lo­cal mu­si­cian Matthew Barker and a clas­sic Aus­tralian film.

Barker will en­ter­tain the crowd from 6pm with some fa­mil­iar Aussie tunes be­fore the the­atre screens Aus­tralian clas­sic The Cas­tle at 8pm.

The com­edy tells the story of a Mel­bourne fam­ily fight­ing to stay in their home after the gov­ern­ment plans to ex­pand the nearby air­port.

Barker has been per­form­ing with orig­i­nal bands through­out the east coast of Aus­tralia for about a decade be­fore form­ing his own band The Buck­seats and the night will fea­ture a mix of clas­sic songs by Aus­tralian mu­si­cians and his own work.

The the­atre has or­gan­ised for a bus ser­vice from Bund­aberg and Bar­gara for those wish­ing to at­tend at $10 per per­son.

Ap­ple Tree Creek Ho­tel co-man­ager Kelly Hay­den said one of Sun­shine Coast’s favourite bands The Whiskey Moun­tain Boys would be par­tic­i­pat­ing in its Aus­tralia Day fes­tiv­i­ties fresh from the Tam­worth Fes­ti­val.

“We have an all day cricket match, me­chan­i­cal bull, jumping cas­tle and mar­kets,” she said.

“The lo­cal cafe called Lo­ca­li­cious will turn­ing into the Lo­ca­li­cious Banger Barn for the day pro­vid­ing sausage siz­zles, cof­fee and lam­ing­tons.

“We are hop­ing for a fun day out.”

Mean­while there will be a break­fast, cer­e­mony and awards to be pre­sented at the Cul­tural Cen­tre.

The awards will cover sportsper­son of the year (ju­nior and se­nior), quiet achiever (ju­nior and se­nior) and com­mu­nity event.

Or­gan­iser Donna Dun­can said there would be live mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment for all ages, in­clud­ing a jumping cas­tle for the kids.
