Happy Birthday Australia

Reading time: 2 minutes

Whether you’re spending the day at a barbecue with the family, watching the cricket with friends or doing a pub crawl in London we hope you have a great Australia Day!
If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of Aussies spending the day overseas and you’re feeling just a wee bit homesick – TID has you covered.

Due to popular demand we have reactivated the TID Homesick Hotline for Australia Day.

All you have to do is jump on your phone and dial 1800-STRAYA (1800 787 292 or +61 2 8316-6999 from overseas) or click on the play buttons below, and you’ll be instantly reminded of some of the iconic Australian sounds that you love, and maybe don’t quite love.
There are 9 sounds including the waves of Bondi Beach, cockatoos waking you up on a Sunday morning and your neighbour pouring his empties into a wheelie bin.
In a couple of minutes, we’ll banish that homesickness and have you back on your way to enjoy the rest of your trip.
Homesick Aussies – or even those who just fancy enjoying some of Australia’s most iconic sounds – go on, call 1800-STRAYA (+61 2 8316-6999) now.
