Australia Day. It’s that special day of the year where the nation unites as one to celebrate all things Australian. Barbeques, the beach, a heap of sunshine all alongside some icy cold beverages help fill up most people’s day, but is that the case for everyone?

To find out, we caught up with the gorgeous Ellie-Jean Coffey to find out how exactly she spends January 26th each year.

1. Beach Cricket
The perfect Aussie activity to join the competitive spirit with a good laugh. Grab a set of cheap stumps, the cricket bat that’s been in your garage since last year and head to the sand for a few innings with your mates.

2. Surfing
What better way to kick off Aussie Day than with a few pumping waves? Regardless of your craft of choice, be sure to get out in your local line-up and grab yourself some little runners before settling in for the day’s activities ahead.

3. Triple J’s Hottest 100
The most popular past time of Australia Day, the Triple J Hottest 100. Park yourself up for the day and blast the volume to 2015’s hottest hits, counting down from number 100 to of course, number 1, as voted by the listeners of the nation. Will your favourite tunes be part of the action? Only time will tell!

4. A Barbeque
Whether you scored a barbeque at beach, or you are simply set up at your best mates place, fire up the barbie, chuck on your favourite foods and enjoy a big Aussie feast – you deserve it!

5. Cold beverages in the Sun
Australia Day lands right at the peak of Summer, meaning some pretty intense heat comes with it. Grab yourself some cold beverages to keep cool and stay hydrated throughout the day, and be sure to slip, slop, slap on some sunscreen.
