Spend this Australia Day at the Story Bridge Hotel

Brisbane's best Australia Day festival now in it's 38th year and it continues to evolve and grow into a full day (and night) of live music, our famous cockroach races, Aussie themed food vendors, competitions, giveaway, activities, drinks, laughs and of course winners!

This year we have our traditional competitions such as "Best Dressed Team" & for the ladies "Miss Cocky"!

The more creative the better! There are prizes to be won on both competitions so get dressed and get ready to win!

This special event expands right across the road and into the car park for the ultimate street festival. There will be food trucks and street stalls serving up the Story Bridge Hotel’s Australian Street Food Menu. With live music and DJs in the Hotel and on the street stage there will be music to suit everyone’s taste and make it a day to remember! Take a look at all the memories from the past years here.

Gates open at 11am entry is a simple gold coin donation with all proceeds going to Youngcare.
