The Great Australian Bites celebrations lit up South Bank Parklands from 26-28 January, 2017, where guests celebrated their Australia Day weekend in style. Pop-up stalls served up a variety of taster plates and drinks, showcasing local Queensland produce. Live performances by Phil Jamieson, Dan Kelly and Ben Ely entertained crowds, whilst craft activities kept the kids engaged. On the Australia Day evening, fireworks ignited the sky.
