On the 12th of June 2021, the Filipino Community of Roxby Downs in South Australia celebrated the 123rd Philippine Independence Day with a midday sausage sizzle at the Pioneer Drive Playground.

At 1:00pm a formal program followed where Outback Pinoy Movement (OPM) President Rene Ayala and the Roxby Downs Council, represented by Stuart Edwards, planted a Jacaranda to mark the enduring friendship between Australians and Filipinos. The event was well attended and it was another success for OPM Roxby Downs.
