Australia Day!

The 26th of January is Australia Day (and a National Public Holiday!). Annually celebrated on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet  of British Ships in Port Jackson, NSW and raising of the Flag of Great Britain.  In more recent years Australia Day celebrates and reflects the diverse society and landscape of the nation, and are marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards, and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community.
