Though we may not be able to spend the day lounging on the beach or at a sausage sizzle this year, some of our favorite Aussie spots in New York will have some special Australia Day offerings.
Hole in the Wall: This Aussie café now has 4 locations in the city and will be offering a special Australia Day menu on the 26th including a sausage sandwich, lamb burger and espresso martinis!
Isla & Co: Sister restaurant to Hole in the Wall in will be hosting an Australia Day party complete with meat pies & sausage rolls. They will also be playing the never to be missed Triple J Hottest 100!
Beckett’s Bar: this downtown bar & grill will be holding a family-friendly live Aussie (& Kiwi) sing-a-long music night! There is the promise of music from some of your favorite acts including INXS, Crowded House and Powderfinger
Little Ruby’s Café: Our favorite Aussie brunch spot will also provide a special Australia Day menu from Jan 25-29th which we are hearing includes fairy bread ice cream!
They will also be donating a portion of their proceeds to NAAJA (North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency) which offers legal services to Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory.
Bluestone Lane: never to be left out, they will be celebrating Australiana Week (Jan 23-29th). Every day, they will have different offers on their app. Details here on how to download the app!
Bourke Street Bakery: Will be offering limited edition lamingtons from Jan 26-29th and a special vegemite cheesy scrolls all week! Now that is definitely a taste of home we are missing!

At AWNY we understand that January 26th may not be the ideal date to mark Australia Day and welcome the ongoing conversations to find a day where we can truly honor our country in a way that ensures every Australian can be celebrated.
