This will be the 10th year the club has held the free event, which attracted about 500 people in 2015.

Club member Terry Dodd is one of the organisers busy preparing for the day and said there would be plenty of activities to keep people entertained.

“We have entertainment; train rides, face painting, a bouncy castle and live music,” he said.

The club uses money raised from its weekly swap mart at Newpark Shopping Centre to provide free entertainment and a cooked breakfast.

Mr Dodd said the event attracted many Girrawheen and Koondoola residents, with people from a variety of cultures helping to celebrate the day.

“I encourage people to come along for a bit of Australiana,” he said. “I’m usually running the train rides (but) I enjoy the whole thing.

“It’s important to keep it going.”

The breakfast will run from 7am to 11am at Hudson Park in Girrawheen on January 26.
