AS THE sun beats down on this great southern land on Australia Day, what will you be doing?
Get into the spirit of the day at Caboolture Historical Village.
Operations co-ordinator Greg Raedel said the event would offer a bit of everything for everyone.
"It's a great family day out," he said.
"Included in admission price for kids under 12 there's activities from pony rides, a jumping castle, face painting and a free train ride.
"There will be plenty of food stalls but families are welcome to enjoy a packed picnic lunch under the village trees.
"We're making it family friendly, especially in the heat of the day with kids' activities in the northern end of the village under the trees and our re-enactment shows at the southern end in the shade."
Mr Raedel said one of the most important parts of the celebration was the citizenship ceremony, conducted by Member for Longman Wyatt Roy.
"We'll have 50 new Australians taking part and the citizenship ceremony is a big part of what Australia Day is all about," he said.
Entertainment will include the Uke Dukes, the Sunshine Statesmen and the Caboolture Kilties.
"And keeping in with the Australian theme we'll have everything from bushrangers to spinning wool and our blacksmith will be hard at work," Mr Raedel said.
"We'll be running entertainment all day on the Hotel veranda which is open for business."
Celebrations will start at the village at 9am on Saturday. There will be a free return shuttle bus from Morayfield Shopping Centre and Caboolture train station. Normal admission prices apply.
