Feel-Good Discoveries for Celebrating Youth Day this Year

From sports to shows, good food to drinks, here’s what’s on offer this Youth Day

Last Update 11 June 2018

Youth Day doesn’t bring the perk of a long weekend this year, but that doesn’t have to affect any of the fun. It’s activities galore with a slew of events you can attend to let your hair down and dance like you just turned 16!

If you are in the mood for some good food or looking to work up a sweat or just prefer to take in a show, then check out our selection of events in honour of this historical day.

TWO FOR ONE TEQUILA
Head down to your favourite quirky Victorian-style restaurant to celebrate Youth Day in style. With a two-for-one tequila special, this one’s going to be a banger. A Touch of Madness in Obs hosts a weekly “Touch Down Saturdays” party, which falls on Youth Day this weekend. Good enough reason to gather a team and raise a glass. Join them for a day of celebrating, drinking and grooving in their sunny beer garden, all with DJs from Selective Hearing.
