One thing you southern city folks need to understand is that up here in the North, we don’t need a special day to be Australian. We don’t need a special day get out and drive around in our utes and proudly display the flags – the Australian flag, the Eureka flag and the Bundy rum flag. It’s not just one day of the year that we go down to the local pool, cos christ it's hot, and let our tattoos and our guts hang out while we sit on the lane ropes in the deep end and yell at our loved ones to bring us a cigga. Not just one day that we take the kids to the park for a barbie, and while they run around and scream like maniacs we jam our hats down hard on our heads and crack a couple of tinnies.
What I’m trying to say is, it’s always Australia Day up here. We really don’t need any further encouragement.
