It’s all about snacks

Get busy in the kitchen

If you prefer to DIY it, why not have a barbeque? Get fresh buns, snags, patties and toppings or step it up with Mitch Orr's succulent Grilled Lamb Chops and Juicy Peach Salad. Finally, top it off with these scrumptious and equally delicious Passionfruit Vanilla Ice-Block Bars. Pick up all the ingredients you needs from Coles and Bakers Delight.

Don’t forget the drinks

Stock up on your favourite beer, wine and spirits from Liquorland. If a cocktail is more your thing, try this refreshing Lychee Orange Blush Cocktail recipe.

For the non-drinkers and the kids, grab mineral waters and soft drinks or make your own mocktails and serve them in large jugs or drink dispenses from Matchbox, Big W or Target.
