LOCALS will be able to snag a sausage in bread on Tuesday at one of almost a dozen Australia Day celebrations across the shire.

While the forecast is for between 19 and 24 degrees Celsius, at least the blistering heat of Monday has passed through, making for a more comfortable temperature for a fry-up.

However brollies may be needed, with a high chance of rain - between six and 15 millimetres forecast.

After a tough year and uncertainties, many locals are welcoming celebrations, and fishermen were delighted the Golden Beach Australia Day weekend fishing carnival was able to go ahead.

Seaspray is always a popular spot to celebrate Australia Day, and everyone is invited to join the celebrations at Seaspray Surf Life Saving Club.

The event will include a flag raising ceremony, national anthem, guest speakers, and a sausage sizzle, along with children's activities.

In Loch Sport, the town's Lions Club will also celebrate Australia Day with a flag raising ceremonies, speeches and the Lions Citizen of the Year award ceremony.
