"Is Macca's open on Australia Day?" This is a question more Aussies ask themselves than you might think. The good news is that there will be plenty of McDonald's stores offering piping hot Big Macs on Friday 26 January - you can find the nearest available outlet to your location here.
While nothing beats a homemade BBQ on Australia Day, there are various reasons you might need a sneaky Macca's fix. Some motorists require a quick breakfast while driving to their family's house. Others find themselves inexplicably hungry while driving home from a blowout lunch.
As in previous years, the majority of McDonald's 900-odd stores will be open for business on Australia Day. To find a McDonald's that's open in your area, simply visit the McDonald's Store Locator and type in your suburb or postcode (or the suburb/postcode of your expected pitstop.)
Alternatively, stick to main highways and major motorways - most of these stores should definitely be open!
