Each Australia Day, few things are more predictable than backyard cricket barnies, hottest 100 blaring from the stereo and… the inevitable 2pm lukewarm drinks as the sun heats up and all the ice melts.

Because let’s face it, if you don’t run out of ice on Australia Day, is it even Australia Day?

This year, UberEATS will be on hand to give ordinary men and women the power to make iceless eskies a thing of the past – helping everyday Aussies become the backyard heroes they’ve always dreamed of being.

Struth, Ruth! Get FREE ice cubes delivered to your backyard BBQ this Australia Day!

From 11am to 3pm (or until sold out) you can order bags of ice cubes and have them delivered directly to your door using the UberEATS app. The best part? If you’re new to UberEATS, it’s free!

Bags of ice cubes will be available through the UberEATS app in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Maximum of 1 bag per order.
