On Monday the 26th January, it was Australia Day and our first experience of such a phenomenon! A few days before, we noticed people flying Ozzie flags from their cars and then more and more flags appeared even from balconies, gardens, shops and everywhere. It is a day of great celebration and most of Perth makes their way, either tothe city or some other designated spot on the coast, to picnic or barbeque and generally marinate themselves while awaiting the fireworks show.
We avoided the masses in the city and went to Quinns Beach, north of the city, had a picnic and the kids swam.We took a short walk to Mindarie Keys, a marina with hotel, pubs and restaurants. A lovely day all in all!
