Stone the flamin' crows, our prayers have been answered.

Ice, ice baby.

It's Australia Day, the Hottest 100 is blaring, you've sunk a few frothies, the snags are well and truly sizzling. Then panic hits, you've run out of ice.

We've all been there.

Well, this year UberEATS is trying to make sure this isn't a problem by offering to deliver ice to your backyard BBQ this public holiday, just when you need it most.

You've got to place an order between 11am and 3pm on Thursday and if you're new to the service, well, then it's bloody free. Better get in early in case it sells out.

The 5kg ice bags are $5 plus delivery fee or completely free (up to $10) if it's your first time using the app. We predict UberEATS will be very, very busy tomorrow.

If you're new to the app just use the promo code BACKYARDHERO for the free icey goodness. And a backyard hero you will soon be.

How it works

  1. Download or open the UberEATS app – you can sign in using your Uber account or sign up and create a new one.
  2. Find your nearest ICE store – on January 26th between 11 am and 3pm open the UberEATS app and simply type 'promo code tbc' into the search bar to locate stores available in your area.
  3. New to UberEATS? The esky refill is on us – enter the promo code 'BACKYARDHERO' and your ICE will be FREE (up to $10)! Bags of 5kg ice are $5 + delivery fee
  4. Tell us where to deliver – add your home, work, or any other address you'd like.
  5. Check out with a tap – and track your order as it gets picked up and delivered to you.
  6. Give your esky a pat on the back – because let's be honest, they're the true unsung heroes.

No one likes a warm beverage, especially not on Australia Day.
