No worries, just Aussie fun

Chatham’s Dockside Outlet Centre was awash with "A-list" celebrity glamour last weekend when Australia day took center stage.

Kylie and Dannii Minogue look-a-likes dazzled shoppers during two days of Aussie activities.

Punters were able to give the beach dudes of Bondi Beach a run for their money on a surf simulator, and a number of prizes were up for grabs, including a car and £200 worth of vouchers for the shopping centre. Boomers sandwich bar at Dockside gave everyone the chance to sample some Aussie food and drink as well as getting up close and personal with a few of the animals from down under.

Tracey Brooks, owner of Boomers, was delighted with how well the event was received by the Medway public.

She said: "Australia Day weekend is so important to me and is a great way to celebrate the day without being in Oz. I hope shoppers enjoyed a taste of the outback and their day as much as I did".
