Australia Day

This events and activities guide will help you to find what's on this Australia Day.

Grab your flag printed board shorts and stock your fridge with lamb because Australia Day is fast approaching! January 26th marks the day we celebrate the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and is today an opportunity for Aussies to come together to celebrate their country and their culture.

Enjoy the day off work and use it to picnic in the park, go shopping, or play sports. Fireworks displays are held and the Australian of the Year Awards are presented to those Australians who have made an outstanding contribution to their country or community. With community festivals, concerts and citizenship ceremonies, the day is a celebration of what it means to be Australian.
