Australia Day


Australia Day is the official national day of Australia, celebrated on 26th January and a public holiday since 1994. 

It marks the arrival in 1788 of the the British in Australia, and has traditionally been a day where friends and family come together in the middle of the summer to celebrate a day off school and work, when outdoor concerts and sports competitions and firework displays are enjoyed, and when ceremonies are held to welcome new citizens to the country.

In recent years we are told that the celebration of Australia Day has become increasingly contraversial.
