“Is Macca’s open on public holidays?” This is a question that 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 January 26 – you can find the nearest available outlet to your location here.
Whether you’re choosing to quietly observe the day off with loved ones at home, or if you’re taking the opportunity to head out of town this week, a quick visit to your local Macca’s is a popular choice for hungry Aussies.
Luckily, the golden arches rarely close their doors, so getting your hands on a quarter pounder and fries should not be a difficult task – even on a public holiday date.
There's nothing quite like McDonald's French fries straight from the fryer - they're moist-yet-crunchy, deliciously fresh tasting and almost too hot to eat. The same can't be said of older batches. To put it bluntly, they taste like cheap, soggy cardboard with some salt sprinkled on top. If you're unlucky enough to order at the wrong time, this can seriously impact your enjoyment of the meal.</p> <p>Fortunately, it's not difficult to get a fresh batch of McDonald's fries every single time - and you don't need to employ wily subterfuge or menu 'hacks' to get it. Instead, just ask at the counter.Read more
As in previous years, the majority of McDonald’s stores will be open for business on the January 26th public holiday. 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 pit stop.) From here, you’ll be shown the closest McDonald’s restaurants to you – you can also check out their opening hours across the week, too.
Alternatively, if you’re unsure, or don’t have a solid Internet connection tomorrow, just stick to main highways and major motorways when driving – most of these stores should definitely be open!
