Retailers will capitalise on the celebrations offering attractive deals on a range of goods designed to be enjoyed on the day itself. Australian manufacturers might also provide discounts on Australian-made goods to coincide with the celebrations of our nation and to support local businesses.

There is also an annual sale on Australia Day called the True Blue Sale. It's a chance for Australian brands to offer discounts to their loyal Aussie customers. You can check out the full list of sales on the True Blue Sale home page.

Tips for Australia Day sales

Australia Day isn't a well known day for shoppers, but this doesn't mean there aren't bargains to be had. As mentioned above, retailers will have amassed a large amount of goods to sell in anticipation of Australia Day celebrations. Some may also stock Australian products and wish to sell these at discounted prices.

Here are some tips when shopping during the Australia Day period:

Compare. Unfortunately there'll be two types of retailers selling goods on Australia Day. Some retailers will buy products at cheap prices and in bulk so they can fulfil their customer's needs and still offer a discount. Others might keep their prices steady or even inflate them. Do your research by making calls or browsing similar products online to ensure you're not being ripped off.

Avoid Australian-themed merchandise if you don't need them. Everyone wants to display a bit of Aussie pride on Australia Day, so it's easy to see why many will want to buy merchandise and clothing with Australian flags and other national symbols on it. If the item you're looking for doesn't really need an Australian-flag printed on it you might want to avoid it: some retailers will discount these pieces, but others might jack prices up.

Australia Day shopping hours

Most larger department stores and supermarkets will be open on Australia Day; however, smaller specialty stores may not be open. Stores may also have shorter trading hours. For more information log onto the trading hours section of the shopping centre you wish to visit on the Australia Day public holiday, or give them a call if you know their number.

Australia Day events and history

Australia Day coincides with the day the First Fleet sailed into Sydney Cove, 26 January 1788. In 1838 the day was proclaimed as a public holiday to be celebrated each year and later in 1946 a committee was established in Melbourne to provide information about the day, followed by the other states. By 1994, all Australian states and territories were celebrating Australia Day on the same day.

Australia Day coincides with celebrations in every state and territory. Each year the Australian of the Year Award is also handed out. The city these awards take place in alternates between Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.
