What’s On January - come together at Banana Bender Pub!

The Banana Bender Pub’s iconic Australia Day celebrations are back in 2024, with a heap of food, drinks and free true-blue entertainment.

Join us at the Sunshine Coast’s quirkiest pub known for our unique Australiana vibes and a family-friendly setting with a whole bunch of interactive fun on the menu.

Australia Day Family Fun

Some weird and wonderful Aussie activities will include cane toad races, thong tossing competitions, lamington eating contests and bickie biting challenges.

Guests can pick a cane toad and try their luck in the greatest race of the day where dozens of toads will compete for the top prize in the Shed. There will be several races held throughout the day.

The kids will love taking part in the thong tossing and indulging in the popular eating challenges – there’s no better excuse for devouring some sweet treats!

Sunshine Coast rock duo Fried Out Kombi will rock out in The Den, performing your favourite pub classics that will have you up and dancing… and singing along!

The beer garden will provide the ultimate outdoor venue to enjoy the sunshine with family and friends.

The Banana Bender Pub’s Mango’s Bar & Grill has a range of fresh, local dishes including the classic Steak Sanga, exclusive to Australia Day!

The Banana Bender Pub is the perfect place to spend your day off – just grab a cold one and sit back and relax.

Cheers to Australia Day with our dark and stormy cocktail, or try out our classic cocktail the Shaggin Wagon.
