As a student who doesn't have much work going on at the moment, I would still love to have a great Australia Day with my partner. How can we have a beautiful day celebrating this holiday without it costing us heaps?

There are so many events held in and around town for Australia Day which will only cost you the amount it takes to get you to those events i.e. transportation. Find out what is going on near you (weekendnotes is a great place to find out or local council websites), maybe buy a flag tattoo and a pin to show your support, pack a picnic for yourself so that you don't have to spend money on buying food and enjoy yourself all day.
On waking, put ya thongs on, make some toast and put some Vegemite on it.
For lunch time have a Meat pie and sauce, a few beers and just throw ya self on the lounge, watch t.v....in fact watch the movie called ''The Castle'' .
After that get up, and have a few more beers.
Go have a nap for an hour....and then have a barbie for dinner.Oh! and lamingtons for dessert.
Have another beer, and a good burp! and lay back down on the lounge.Watch some t.v. again.
Take advantage of some free events going on in your city - such as live bands and fireworks: australiaday.com.au
You can get some cheap decorations from the $2 shop and organise a BBQ at home. Get everyone to bring a plate and some drinks and you can have an awesome day without spending too much money. If you don't have space for a BBQ, organise to meet up with friends in a park or at the beach.
Why would it cost heaps? It's not a holiday I've ever really spent money on.

You could spend the day at home together, or head to a park and have a picnic.
Councils generally run something for free, however the best bet is to check their websites to see if they are hosting anything interesting in your area.
Local councils have some awesome events on. Some of it is free, some of it you have to pay for. Most often there is a free band at a local park, and there are rides and food stalls which people have to pay for. If you're on a budget, you could eat before you go, or pack a picnic and enjoy the music and the atmosphere!
