UberEATS to deliver bags of ice to backyard barbecues across Australia tomorrow

If a typical Aussie backyard BBQ is your main game for the Australia Day public holiday tomorrow then you may want to make sure you’ve got UberEATS on your smartphone. The delivery service have announced that instead of the usual messina and puppie bringing, their fleet of on-demand drivers will be heading around all serviced areas across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide and delivering bags of ice.

Yep, you won’t need a frantic 2pm servo run to keep that eskie going tomorrow arvo. All you’ll have to do is simply log onto the UberEATS app, type “backyardhero” into the search bar to locate stores in your area, enter your exact address and order up 5kg bags of ice between 11am and 3pm. You’ll be able to track the driver as they fang it on over to you with your order.

Better yet, those who have never used UberEATS before can enter the promo code “BACKYARDHERO” and delivery will be free for orders up to $10. For the rest of us, we’ll be looking at a delivery fee on top of our orders, with 5kg bags of ice cubes set at $5 each.
