This year January 26 falls on a Sunday, so the national public holiday – officially known as Australia Day – will be marked on Monday, January 27. In recent years, Indigenous Australians and supporters of the Change the Date movement have called it Invasion Day or Survival Day.

However you observe your day off this year, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are staying open. Many have committed to contributing some of their profits to bushfire-affected communities, so grab some brunch and show your support.
