On: Friday, 26 January 2018
Head out to Lake Mary Ann before 6am to cheer on participants in the Triathlon.
All that clapping makes for hungry work so make your way to Battery Hill on Peko Road for the Outdoor Brekky and the official celebrations including Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony. Breakfast is $12.
From 12 noon onwards there's fun and games including tug of war, egg relay, raft race, pie eating contest, leaky bucket race, the best dressed competition and a free community BBQ out at Lake Mary Ann.
Hosted by Barkly Regional Council, Mayor Steve Edgington said Australia Day was the one day of the year where locals let their hair down, had fun and joined in a spirit of camaraderie that is unique to Tennant Creek.
“The celebrations reflect the diverse society and landscape of the Barkly and are marked by community and family events. It’s a remarkable day, with many different activities on offer,” he said.
