The ultimate Australia Day playlist

  • The ultimate Australia Day playlist

Aussies certainly love their icons. Whether it’s the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, a meat pie at the cricket or Olivia Newton-John in lycra, we're big fans of tradition. 

Which is why there’s no time like Australia Day to blast our Aussie anthems – and no, we’re not talking about Advance Australia Fair. We’ve curated a playlist so Australian, so true blue and so fair dinkum, that it gives Paul Hogan and his Bowie knife a run for their money.

Before you whip up the Pav, fire up the barbie or bust open the esky, cue up the UQ Sport Aussie Banger's playlist and groove down the Highway to Hell.

Let us know if we've missed any essential Aussie anthems in the comments below!

Plus, check out our top recipes for a healthy Australia Day feed.
