Australian expats planning to spend Australia Day hanging out with other Australians and drinking
DUBAI: In accordance with long-standing traditions, proud Australian expats living across the Middle East have revealed that they’re planning to spend Australia Day hanging out with other Australians and drinking.
“Every year we commemorate this special day on the Australian calendar in true Ozzie style,” said Freddie Lomax, a Perth-born gym instructor who has been living in Dubai since 2003. “So we’re going to hang out in an Australia-themed bar, talk about how amazing Australia is and sink a few Australian beers. Or Heineken if they haven’t got any.”
