Great Australian Bites

This Australia Day, communities across Queensland came together to celebrate and honour our rich heritage, shared values and diverse multicultural community at Great Australian Bites ─ a celebration of food, fun and festivities.

With free entry, delectable tasting plates prepared by local restaurant pop-up stalls, popular food vendors offering affordable high-quality produce, and lively entertainment from home-grown musicians, Great Australian Bites was the perfect way to relax and enjoy the Australian summer atmosphere with family and friends.

  • Bargara
  • Brisbane
  • Cloncurry
  • Gympie
  • Ilfracombe
