Saddle up your kangaroo and hop to the Great Aussie BBQ on Sunday 24 October 2010 for an action-packed day of Australian culture in the great outdoors. There’s oodles of fun for the whole family – blokes, sheilas, ankle biters and rug rats alike.
Watch the chambers do battle in an international Tug of War. Witness cricket history in the making at the inaugural Beijing test match between Australia and England.
For the kids, there’s a jumping castle, face painting and a petting zoo, plus loads of football in all shapes and sizes. Learn about Australian Rules Football at the Beijing Bombers Auskick program. Join the Beijing Devils touch footy competition. Or if a rounder ball is more their style, Sports Beijing will be hosting football (soccer) clinics.
The snags (sausages) will be sizzling on the barbie and there will be plenty of other good Aussie tucker to wash down with a coldie. Bring a picnic blanket and make a day of it before the weather turns really nasty.
While rumours of sunshine and crocodile wrestling remain unconfirmed, the Australian and British ambassadors will be there with bells on. So grab your mates, head to the bush and support the local Aussie community for a day of fun and frivolities.
