Bombala Australia Day is now in it's 65th year and is renowned throughout the area as one of the longest running celebrations in the country.

The day usually kicks off with a mini triathlon in the morning and the NSW Strong Wool Shearing competitions at the Bombala Showground.

The Australia Day official ceremonies will be held in between shearing heats and there is plenty for the whole family to do.

Activities include a sausage cook-off competition, wood chop, photo competition, fashion parade, geocaching along with food stalls, loads of refreshments, kids' rides, raffles, craft and more.

A 'Funkhana' will be taking place on the showground organised by the pony club for those riders who would like to spend the day with their horses.

Everyone is invited to enjoy this community event and make the most of the entertainment to end the school holidays.
