Australia Day 2012

Australia Day 2012

Australia Day falls on the 26th of January. Around the same time the famous Australian Open occurs! This year I took the chance to brave the sun and headed into the city for a great day out.

Given my love of Jazz, I was excited to catch James Morrisson’s show, one of Australia’s best living Jazz export performing a symphony of his hits.

After that show, the crowd was treated to a great variety of shows and included the Roulettes.

Moving through the crowd, hunger got the better of me and I stopped over for some nachos! It was fortunate that I managed to score the last nachos 🙂

I finally ended up at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl to hear the songs & dance of the Scottish & Irish! It was a great treat to see Melbourne’s own Damian Leith come out to perform.

The Metrics:

Transport: $11 for the day (this was back at the start of the year. Now it would have been $3.30)

Food: $7.50

Entry: Free


Total – $18.50


Well within our spending limit! My only regret is that I couldn’t get there sooner!
