Australia Day in Europe

by 26 January 2011

For those working or traveling abroad, January 26th is not a national holiday as it is for Australians at home, however, well-known for making any excuse to take time out to celebrate, today is a particularly proud day for Aussies everywhere.

If you are a social traveler, you will know that everyone and anyone is welcome to share a drink and a laugh with an Australian so why not make this Wednesday night particularly special after a hectic day of business or sightseeing and find your way to one of the Australia Day venues across Europe. Expect live music, DJ’s, gourmet pub-style food and, of course, Australian beer at each of the bars.

The perfect remedy for anyone feeling a little homesick, or in desperate need of a nightspot where they can unwind, no matter where you’re from!
