Fair crack of the whip or better way of looking at it we could say Fair suck of the sauce bottle (we all know that will be happening around most of Australia on Australia Day) ! Whips will be cracking of course for those that over indulge, but hey it’s been a tough year (or years) so it’s time for some good ole Fashion AUSSIE FUN this coming Australia Day at the Dragon, Wednesday 26th of January 2022!


It never hurt nobody, depends how much sauce sucking you do. Kevin Rudd referred to it as sauce shaking, now that would have to hurt! Or is this Australia day party the secret sauce that Scomo needs to stimulate the economy, responsibly of course by getting on the sauce and that means enjoying a few vegemite snags and lamingtons! Keep the economy going, you know , one shindig at a time!

Bearded Dragon Hotel Tamborine has a fair dinkum Aussie line-up of Fun for Australia Day as always, with the Rockin’ Crew from Turtle Boy playing live from 2pm till Late!
The famous Bearded Dragon Tamborine Cane toad racing Calcutta and Australia Day Raffles proceeds Rural Fire Brigades.

Bigger and bigger than all the previous years combined! Celebrate everything you love about being Australian, just kicking back with family and friends in an awesome country setting is the perfect way to celebrate with the ones you love.

A perfect spot for social distancing and we promise not to mention the dreaded ‘c’ word (that rhymes with ‘ovid’).

We know its been dryer than a dead dingoes donger in Australia so treat yourself to Bearded Dragon’s water cooling system in the Beer Garden & Kids Playground or enjoy the air-conditioned Restaurant and Ballroom for your comfort!

Kids Australian Themed Activity Tent, Thong Throwing, Lamington Scoffing, Aussie themed Colouring Competition, Big Kids & Small kids promotions, giveaways and themed Aussie tucker and family fun this Australia Day!

Sign up for the Annual Iron Bloke & Iron Sheila Championship, so you think you are a tough mudder with true grit and Aussie courage then maybe you will be the next person to take the crown! Wait, what, you get a crown (not a mask!) …. Where do I sign!
