Australia Day 1st Annual Sausage Sizzle @ Buc-ee’s Waller
Jan 25 @ 8:45 AM

Australia Day 1st Annual Sausage Sizzle

To pay tribute to the First Lady’s native Lands’ National Day. We will meet at Bucc-ee’s on 290 (WALLER) and enjoy a spirited drive to a secret location out in the back of Bourke, well beyond the black stump, for a fair dinkum Aussie Sausage sizzle. For them that’s not properly informed, an Aussie sausage or “snag” as we prefer to call them are cooked on a hot plate, along with lashings of grilled onions and served on a white bit of bread with Dead Horse, which is what yous lot call ketchup. “dead horse” rhymes with “sauce, for tomato sauce, which is what we call ketchup. Anyway to them important bits:-

Drivers meeting 08:45 am (Buc-ee’s Waller)
Departure 09:00 am
Pitstop around 10:00 am
Arrival at the Back of Bourke, beyond the black stump 11:30 for me world famous Snags and Dead Horse.

Remember, full tank, empty bladder.

This run will be a spirited run lead by none other than the fastest Shelia this side of the great divide. Be there, don’t make me come looking for ya!

Nothing goes as well with a Snag Sanger as a cold tinnie.  Unfortunately, the Back of Bourke is on Sacred Ground, and the original owners won’t allow alcohol…

Cost for the lunch is $5.00 including as many snags as you can shove down yer gullet and into yer black guts, and a can of fizzy lollywater. (soda).

Yer old mate.
Mick Dundee.
