City of Playford: bringing people together to foster community spirit

Australia Day Celebrations


Enlighten your senses this Australia Day as Playford brings the beach to YOU!

Feel the sand between your toes and the summer breeze on your face as you enjoy a FREE barbie brekky.

You and the family can sit back and relax in the deck chairs while listening to some care free and laid back beats.

Playford’s Australia Day festivities will celebrate our people and multicultural values featuring local entertainment and our Australia Day Awards recognising the City’s unsung heroes.

Howzat! There will be plenty for the family to see and do with rides for the daredevil in you, beach cricket to get in touch with your inner Bradman and the opportunity to get creative building your own sandcastle masterpiece.

We can’t wait to see you there this Australia Day (26 January) from 8am to 12pm at Fremont Park, Elizabeth!
