Australia Day Backyard Games

Australia Day is another reason to embrace the lovely country we live in. Celebrating with a few friends over a BBQ and some Australia Day backyard games has become a tradition.

Australia Day is a great time to acknowledge our diversity, quality of life and beautiful surroundings.

Whether you are spending Australia Day overseas, at the beach or throwing a party at home, bring out your Aussie spirit with some competitive Australia Day backyard Games.

This year as a tribute to respect Australia’s original custodians the city of Fremantle will be hosting an event on Saturday the 25th January, as will Triple J with their hottest 100.

If you are planning a get together over the Australia Day weekend here are some helpful things to consider.

Australia Day backyard games you can play at home

You have probably heard all the games you can play on Australia Day. Backyard cricket, Toss the thong, Egg and spoon race, Lamington eating competitions, the list goes on.

Have a few beers and get out the slip and slide and watch Aunty Jane do a Bradbury.

Get out the Arnott’s, play bite the biscuit, creating a list of words that are typically Australian and biting the biscuit in the shape of the word.

Make your Australia Day house party a fun one with a dress up. Dress as your favourite Aussie Icon. Surely there would be a few Barnsey, Farnsy fans, Crocodile Dundee’s, Kath’s, Kim’s, Pioda’s and Dame Edna’s.

Be original and create your own game. Play ‘Name that Aussie hit’ listening snippets of songs for people to guess or ‘Guess the movie’ with quotes from some of our best Aussie flicks.

“This is going straight to the pool room.”

“It’s not purple… it’s lavendah!” and of course “You’re terrible Muriel.”

Put your skills to the test with an Australia Day quiz a good one for the oldies. Play group trivia and incorporate history, iconic Australian foods, T.V shows and films.

Either way you will have a load of fun.
