Great Aussie way to celebrate day

AUSTRALIA Day celebrations are fast approaching and Coffs Harbour is putting on a show for the whole family.

If a day of fun in the sun is what you’re after, head down to the third annual Coffs Coast Fun Run at the Coffs Harbour Surf Life Saving Club.

The event is popular with young children and club president Terry Maher is expecting an even better turn-out than previous years.

“It’s a great way to combine exercise and fun,” Mr Maher said.

“There are free giveaways to all competitors and great prizes on offer.”

Registrations for the 2km, 5km and 10km races open at 7am and entry is just $5.

Families seeking a change of pace should make their way to the C.ex Coffs for a day of traditional Aussie activities, with the flag-raising ceremony starting at 8.30am.

The club’s grand auditorium will then house the annual Australia Day awards and citizenship ceremony, which will reward citizens who have made a difference in the local community.

The events co-ordinator Zoe Daw is expecting about 600 guests on the day and has set up an afternoon barbecue for all.

“Guests can buy a drink and get a free sausage from 3pm, with the kids club running as usual,” Ms Daw said.

Activities at the C.ex Coffs kick off at 8.30am and will run all day until late.
