Deniliquin’s Riverina Regional Tourism representative Frank White said tomorrow’s Australia Day will be the ‘‘biggest yet’’.

Mr White said Deniliquin had been a bit ‘‘all over the place’’ with tourists, but is expected to be ‘‘full’’ tomorrow.

Deniliquin BIG4 Holiday Park, which Mr White owns with wife Lynda, is already at capacity and it’s the same for all accommodation places, he said.

‘‘It’s the biggest Australia Day yet, definitely.

‘‘I was looking at the books and we weren’t this full last year.’’

The river has been a big attraction, especially with the option for water activities like boating and fishing.

‘‘People are enjoying themselves, they’re happy to be in Deni.’’
