Sydney’s biggest Australia Day pool parties will be held this Friday in Canterbury-Bankstown, when the Canterbury and Max Parker Leisure and Aquatic Centres are transformed into a mini Miami Beach.
Mayor Khal Asfour said party-goers can also expect a feast of cultural cuisines.
"Canterbury-Bankstown is a rich mosaic of many cultures and traditions, and with tradition comes an endless amount of mouth-watering multicultural meals, which so many of us have come to know and love," Mayor Asfour said.
A number of popular Sydney food trucks will be setting up shop at Canterbury, which has the space to accommodate them, including:
Owner of Lemonrose, Antoin Safadi, said food has always greatly influenced his life.
"I’ve grown up loving and appreciating food and the cultural experience that comes with it," Mr Safadi said.
"I spent a lot of time in the kitchen of my Mum’s family restaurant in Amman, Jordan, and I’ve travelled the world eating my way through place to place in search of the ultimate flavours so I can bring my experience home to share.
"Our style is unlike anything else. It’s a zesty and fresh culinary experience."
However, the ever popular sausage ‘sanga’ hasn’t been forgotten, with Padstow Rotary Club and Bankstown City Lions Football Club set to cook up more than 2,000 sausages for visitors at the Canterbury and Max Parker (Revesby) centres.
