CELEBRATIONS will sizzle with a sausage breakfast barbecue and swims at the 10th annual council-organised event at Claremont Aquatic Centre on Australia Day.

“We’re a small council and we know our residents enjoy a smaller-scale event, and our regular swimmers can get in a dip too,” Mayor Jock Barker said.

The celebration will be family friendly, with inflatables in the pool, fun rides and games for children.

The first 300 people will get a free sausage sizzle at the barbecue breakfast at the Davies Road pool from 8am this Saturday, when normal entry fees will be charged.
