Aussie Day special
An evening barbecue brunch at Kuzbara
January 26 marks Australia Day, and although it’s now mostly celebrated with things like corkscrew hats and board shorts, the day isn’t without historical significance (and controversy). Australia Day marks the establishment of the first European settlement on the continent at Port Jackson, which is now part of Sydney, in 1788. You can celebrate this momentous occasion in the capital a couple of days early at Kuzbara on Thursday January 24, where the all-day dining restaurant will be championing everything Aussie, with a patriotic barbecue. They’ll be pies, sausage rolls, Pavlova, and caramel tarts, which you can wash down with a selection of Aussie drinks. January 24
