Those locals were joined by a large number of visitors to the area who happened upon the sausage sizzle by chance.

The event, held at the picturesque Gordon Park, created a festive and patriotic atmosphere where like minded Aussies got to chat over a free meal and cold drink to celebrate their national day.

“We wanted to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment for the community to come together and celebrate Australia Day albeit in this small way,” the CEO of the Nambucca Heads RSL Club, Mrs Wendy Mills told News Of The Area.

“I love this country and I want to be able to celebrate what unites us so it is heartening to see so many people joining us this morning.”

As the sizzle continued throughout the morning attendees engaged in conversations and enjoyed great Australian music from a playlist put together by the club team.

“Australia Day celebrations over the years have traditionally been wonderful here in the Nambucca Valley and so many locals would love to see the day celebrated in the way we used to do it,” Mrs Mills concluded.
