Australia Day

Australia Day

26-01-2017

The tradition of having Australia Day as a national holiday on 26 January is a recent one. Not until 1935 did all the Australian states and territories use that name to mark that date. Not until 1994 did they begin to celebrate Australia Day consistently as a public holiday on that date.

There are a number of ceremonial aspects to many Australia Day events which have become both a tradition and a symbol of our national day. If you’re organising an Australia Day event these ceremonies can add meaning to your day. Australia Day ceremonies can include:

– citizenship ceremonies
– affirmation ceremonies
– the Australian flag and flag flying
– Australian national anthem
– Australia day ambassador program.

On Australia Day we recognise the unique status of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The National Australia Day Council (NADC) is committed to playing a part in the journey of Reconciliation by helping all Australians to move forward with a better understanding of our shared past, and importantly how this affects the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today and how we might build a better future together.
