The Best Australia Day Parties That You'll Want To Be At
If there’s one public holiday throughout the year that all Aussies wait for in anticipation, it’s good ‘ol ‘Straya Day. We all get a much-needed day off work (yaaaaaaaas!), and we can bring out the same Aus day outfits we wear every year.
So here are the most epic Australia Day parties from across the country to get you in the spirit for January 26!
Electric Gardens Festival, Sydney
Electric Gardens is the brand spankin’ new summer dance festival that you’ll want to get tickets to if you’re keen to see the best in EDM on the decks. Held in the super lush Centennial Parklands, your day will be filled with purely good vibez since absolute ledge Fatboy Slim is headlining the whole shebang.
St Kilda Bowls Club's Bowled Over Hottest 100 Party, Melbourne
If drinks, barefoot bowls and counting down the best tunez on the Triple J Hottest 100 sounds ideal to you, than head down to St Kilda Bowls Club for a ~mad chilled~ ‘Straya Day.
MC Breakout Oz Edition Hip Hop Party, Perth
The best in Aussie hip-hop are heading to WA for a bangin’ Australia Day celebration. Bliss N Eso, Seth Sentry and Coin Banks are on the bill and are sure to killll it.

Cliff Dive's 2000's Rap Party, Sydney
A regular night at Cliff Dive ALWAYS goes off, so we can only assume that Australia Day at the tropical themed club will be absolutely insane. So put your old school hip-hop and R&B Spotify playlist on repeat a couple of days before, because you’ll be singing and rapping along to all of the songs played at their 2000’s Rap Party.
Prohibition Brisbane's Australia Day Eve Celebrations, Brisbane
If you’re keen to start your ‘Straya Day festivities early, then head to Prohibition Brisbane located in the Valley for some whole day craziness. Word on the street is that they’ll have Southern Cross Sours and Pavlova Martinis. We’ll have several thnx.
Fatboy Slim's Australia Day Beach BBQ, Melbourne
If you’ve ever dreamt of raving along to Fatboy Slim on the beach, with a sausage sizzle in hand, then you’re in luck. After playing in Sydney for the Electric Gardens Festival, Fatboy will be heading southbound to headline a set on the St Kilda foreshore.
Australia Day at The Aviary, Perth
The Aviary is hosting a massive Australia Day celebration, promising a rooftop Pimm’s Garden (yaaass), giant garden games and a post skyshow party, which we are hoping involves fireworks of some sort.
Hottest 100 Party at Parramatta Park, Sydney
Your Australia Day celebrations wouldn’t be complete without listening to Triple J's annual Hottest 100 Countdown, and what better way to celebrate great music than listening to some of the best Aussie artists on the countdown themselves put on a live show. Indie-pop rockers The Jungle Giants are headlining the gig and other Triple J regulars like I Know Leopard and KLP are slated to play.
