So if you’re having people over on Australia Day this year, head to Gumtree where you can find great finds on all the outdoor furniture and BBQ gear you need.

If you don’t already have a BBQ, you’ll need to remedy that immediately! Not just for Australia Day but for every other summer weekend we have left. You can score some absolute bargains on Gumtree like this four burner BBQ with a gas bottle for only $50!

Portable BBQ – $110

Of course we don’t all have a big backyard, so if space is an issue you’ll need something a little more compact. And the benefit of a portable BBQ is you can take it anywhere, so you can enjoy BBQs on the beach, in the park – wherever you like!

Deck chair – $50

There’s nothing more awkward than having people over then realising you don’t have enough seats. Pick up some second hand deck chairs and maybe even a few plastic chairs to make you have ample seating on the day.

Outdoor egg chair – $285

Listening to Triple J’s Hottest 100 is as synonymous with Australia Day as hot weather and BBQs. So don’t leave your guests checking the countdown on their Twitter feed, pick up some portable speakers and keep the music pumping. (Don’t forget to take bets on whether Taylor Swift will make the list!)

Mosquito Trap – $30

Mosquitos are in full force this year, so if your Aussie Day BBQ is likely to stretch on into the evening, pick up a mosquito trap to keep your guests bite free.

Outdoor lantern with candle – $15
