Aussie barbecues, family fun and award presentations will be the feature of Australia Day in Cabonne Shire later this month.

A full day of COVID-safe celebrations is planned for Tuesday 26 January, starting at 8am with breakfasts in several villages and wrapping up with pool parties and dinner in the evening. 

Cabonne’s Australia Day ambassador Susie Elelman, an accomplished multi-media broadcaster, will participate in ceremonies at Borenore, Cudal, Manildra and Yeoval, where Citizens of the Year, Young Citizens of the Year and Community Groups of the Year will be announced.

Ms Elelman will begin a busy Australia Day at 10am in Borenore, where there will be a sausage sizzle and awards ceremony, before heading to Cudal for their award presentation and village gatherings. Ms Elelman will then have an afternoon in Manildra at their pool party, awards and Sutton relay before finishing the day in Yeoval with an evening meal and awards.

Ms Elelman will be accompanied by Cabonne’s Australia Day Youth Ambassador Beau McKenzie, and Mayor Kevin Beatty.

Australia Day will also be celebrated in Canowindra, Cargo, Cumnock, Eugowra, Molong and Mullion Creek, where an assortment of guest speakers, award presentations, competitions and barbecues will showcase the vibrance of the Cabonne shire.

These celebrations across the shire will strive to create the same community atmosphere as previous years, while following government guidelines and maintaining a high level of safety.
