Where to grab your Aussie day essentials
12 Jan 2018
Our step-by-step guide to ensuring you are ready to celebrate in true-blue Aussie style!
With Australia Day just around the corner, we thought we would help out with a quick list of patriotic essentials. From snags to beer, to beachwear and, well, lamb – Chevron Renaissance has you covered for the upcoming celebration of all things Australian.
No Australia Day celebration is complete without a BBQ. Head to Coles and grab yourself a pack of snags, whip up a salad with ingredients from the fresh food aisle and be sure to stop by the freshly baked goods area to grab a loaf of bread (nothing like a sausage in bread on Aus Day!) and a packet of lamingtons (or two). Also for those of you who are planning to spend the day in the sun (so, EVERYONE) then don’t forget to stock up on sunscreen and zinc. If you’re lucky, Coles may even have some Australia Day merchandise you can wear!
Is there anything more satisfying than cracking open an ice cold stubby on Australia Day? Didn’t think so. Pick up a slab from our friends at Liquorland or for those who don’t like beer, grab your favourite drop instead (Liquorland located near Chempro).
Australia Day is mostly spent playing backyard cricket and by the pool, so make sure you have togs to get you through the day! If you’re in dire need of a pair, make a detour past Togs Swimwear where their lovely staff will help you out.
You’ve got your Sunscreen from Coles, but what about a hat and sunnies? It’s a long, hot day outdoors, so, if you don’t wish to be battling heatstroke post Aus Day, then head to Destination 4217 near the restaurants for the perfect sun-protection combo.
ALL THINGS LAMB
It would be un-Australian of you not to eat lamb on Australia Day. Our friends at El Patio De Cuba will be dishing up its popular lamb cigars and legendary lamb meatballs, while Crust Gourmet Pizza serves up a delicious lamb pizza – so be sure to make a pit stop to enjoy our national favourite.
And for those of you who haven’t heard – we’re also giving one lucky shopper the chance to win the ultimate Australia Day prize pack! Complete with a 25L esky, Wahu cricket set, beach ball, inflatable body board, snacks (think chips, dips, party mix and even Zooper Doopers), Australian staples (aka. vegemite and tomato sauce), Australia Day merchandise including tattoos, beach towel, singlet, balloons, plates, napkins and a bottle opener as well as a $150 Coles gift card, your Australia Day will be set.
