Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS of Aus­tralia Day rev­ellers packed Fre­man­tle’s beaches and parks as they took ad­van­tage of last Tues­day’s beau­ti­ful weather to cel­e­brate the na­tional day.

With a full day of ac­tiv­i­ties planned, in­clud­ing beach vol­ley­ball, food stalls, chil­dren’s rides, live mu­sic, ac­tiv­i­ties at the Walyalup Abo­rig­i­nal Cul­tural Cen­tre and a cit­i­zen­ship cer­e­mony, lo­cals could cel­e­brate the day in any way they wanted.

The morn­ing kicked off with the City of Cock­burn’s Big Aussie Day BBQ Brekkie at Coogee.

To cap off the day, the In­dian Ocean Fire­works were launched at Bathers Beach.
