The Australia Day long weekend is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to spend relaxing with friends and family, with plenty of cold drinks, leisurely lunches and sizzling barbecues.
Come together to celebrate our national day with some classic treats as well as a few twists on some retro favourites.
First things first…would it even be an Australia Day celebration without a barbecue? And would any Aussie barbecue be complete without the humble sausage? Pop into your local butcher The Pantry On Grey for a fabulous selection of quality produce, including the tastiest gourmet sausages. Save yourself some prep time and stock up on Pantry’s deliciously fresh salads while you are there! With meat and veg checked off the list, it’s time to think about bread. You won’t have to think too hard as Stone Artisan Bakers is located just across the mall and their loaves are second to none!
Looking for some special Aussie-themed treats to add to your table? The Pantry On Grey have knocked it out of the park with their Iced Vovo Marshmallow Slice just in time for Australia Day! Or perhaps you’d prefer to try your hand at making your own? Round up the ingredients for the Aussie classic Pavlova With Summer Fruit & Passionfruit Syrup or a traditional Lamington at Woolworths Metro and hit the kitchen!
Naturally, our long hot summers turn our thoughts to cold beverages and who better to hit up for your favourite selections than Vulture & Grey. With a fabulous selection of boutique wines, craft beers and ciders…whatever your tastes, they’ll have the perfect tipple on hand. And don’t forget those all-important essentials like sunscreen and insect repellant from TerryWhite Chemmart.
Now you are all set to enjoy your weekend and show some love for our wonderful country!
