Where to grab your Aussie day essentials

With Australia Day just around the corner, we thought we would help out with a quick list of patriotic essentials. From snags to beer, to beachwear and, well, lamb – Chevron Renaissance has you covered for the upcoming celebration of all things Australian.


No Australia Day celebration is complete without a BBQ. Head to Coles and grab yourself a pack of snags, whip up a salad with ingredients from the fresh food aisle and be sure to stop by the freshly baked goods area to grab a loaf of bread (nothing like a sausage in bread on Aus Day!) and a packet of lamingtons (or two). Also for those of you who are planning to spend the day in the sun (so, EVERYONE) then don’t forget to stock up on sunscreen and zinc. If you’re lucky, Coles may even have some Australia Day merchandise you can wear!



Is there anything more satisfying than cracking open an ice cold stubby on Australia Day? Didn’t think so. Pick up a slab from our friends at Liquorland or for those who don’t like beer, grab your favourite drop instead (Liquorland located near Chempro).


You’ve got your Sunscreen from Coles, but what about a hat and sunnies? It’s a long, hot day outdoors, so, if you don’t wish to be battling heatstroke post Aus Day, then head to All about Lila near the restaurants for the perfect sun-protection combo.


It would be un-Australian of you not to eat lamb on Australia Day. Our friends at El Patio De Cuba will be dishing up its popular lamb cigars and legendary lamb meatballs – so be sure to make a pit stop to enjoy our national favourite.
