Australia Day celebrations

On Australia Day 26 January, we celebrate what is great about Australia and being Australian. We take pride in who we are and promote diversity, harmony, social cohesion and respect for our fellow human beings. Through the Australia Day Awards we acknowledge the efforts and commitment of citizens who have made a significant contribution to our community and Australia as a whole.
