Fun Run

The annual Australia Day Fun Run is on again on Thursday 26 January 2017.

The Australia Day Fun Run is a community event held in the morning on Australia Day that encourages everyone to celebrate our National Day by participating in a 2.5 or 5 km run/walk. The event inspires the community to celebrate what 's great about our country, its people and culture by dressing up and displaying a sense of pride.
