With the countdown on until Australia Day, now’s the perfect time to get the party preparation underway. If you’re on the search for Australia Day hosting ideas, look no further, we’ve put together a list of our most hired items for barbeques and long weekend celebrations of any size.
From mobile cold rooms to glassware, consider this your ultimate checklist for a well-planned and memorable Australia Day party!
Since Australia Day takes place in summer, refreshing drinks are always first on our list! Why not switch things up and get creative with a drinks station! Let your guests show off their mixology skills by creating their own personalised concoctions. Guests can mix their own cocktails or pour servings from big batched drinks. If you’re in need of some garnish options, herbs and fruits like limes and strawberries can add an extra twist.
At GC Event Hire we have a wide range of glassware for rent including beer and wine glasses, champagne flutes and spirit glasses. We also have a wide variety of eskies and cooling buckets to ensure your drinks stay on ice!

From a classic sausage sizzle to grilled prawns – if it can be cooked on a barbeque, it’s a definite winner for Australia Day! As well as the barbequed favourites, make sure to bring out the meat pies, lamingtons and sausage rolls. Take the pressure off and organise a relaxed family-style service where guests can help themselves. When it comes to presentation, our wide range of serving platters, bowls and tiered stands are a must-have for this entertaining style.

Mobile Cold Room
No one enjoys lugging bags of ice home from the servo! Forget trying to cram everything into refrigerators and eskies and hire a mobile cold room for the day. A mobile cold room will ensure your food remains fresh and the beverages icy cold even on a hot summer day. Our mobile cold rooms are ideal for short-term cooling solutions, and with our flexible hiring options, you choose the length of the hire. With adjustable temperature control, rear steps and ample space, everything is guaranteed to stay cool with our convenient and easy-to-access mobile cold rooms!
