The Story Bridge Hotel puts on Brisbane's best Australia Day Festival every year!

With the event now in Baildon Street and "under the bridge" our street party will run rain, hail or (fingers crossed) shine!

Come down to enjoy an awesome day long street party including live music on the street stage with Australian artists Aussie Boogaloo, The Joyners, Mira and more, DJs, eats from Abbioco, SBH Catering, as well as everything the Story Bridge Hotel has to offer.

.... And of course the iconic Cockroach Races!

The first race scurries off at 12noon, launching a jam-packed program of 12 races, including a steeple chase. Read our race rules so you can be prepared for this awesome day and take part for your chance at victory. The last race is around 4.30pm and the music and fun continues into the evening.

Fittingly for this elite sporting event, we create dedicated stadium seating and even corporate boxes to watch the races in style!
