Ruggers, pluggers and snags – the best Australia Day parties around Brisbane

We’re just going to put it right out there to diffuse the tension – whilst Australia has a lot of rad qualities, it still has a heck of a long way to go when it comes to respecting the traditional owners of the land. Here at The Weekend Edition we are firmly for changing the date of Australia Day to something that every Australian can enjoy (May 8, anyone?), bringing us together in a celebration of the mateship, unity and multiculturalism that make our country great. It’s great to see these conversations in place and hopefully in the not too distant future these changes will occur, but until then there are plenty of cool events that you can take advantage of on Friday January 26 to celebrate all of the things that make Australia such a fantastic place to live – just remember to take a moment to reflect on the significance of this date for Aboriginal Australians. more
