Every January, Aussies celebrate Australia Day, our version of July 4th, though it celebrates the anniversary of first European settlement on the continent, not our independence as a nation. It happens January 26th, and an explosion of fireworks, picnics and BBQs will ensue. One key difference – down under, we prefer lamb to American hot dogs. All are welcome to join in the celebration – in fact in many cities there will be “G’Day USA” festivities to mark the occasion. And you can always throw some Aussie Lamb on the grill to celebrate yourself! Try this recipe if you need some inspiration.
Be sure to upload your lamb photos to our Facebook page and tag our Pinterest page. We'd love to see your Australia Day moments.
