Australia Day Fun

Australia Day is about acknowledging and celebrating the contribution that every Australian makes to our contemporary and dynamic nation. From our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - who have been here for more than 65,000 years - to those who have come from all corners of the glove to call our country home. Come together with your community and enjoy this important day.
