We are all devastated by the loss and destruction, and we are all stand in solidarity with those affected.
Australians share a unique set of values that define and unite us, values based on the spirit of resilience, community, selflessness and courage.
On Australia Day, we want to help people come together to reflect on and celebrate these values, while continuing to support each other.
There are many ways to participate in Australia Day. We encourage everyone to mark the day in a way that is right for them. The essence of the day is about coming together as a community, whether that’s gathering with family and friends, sharing stories, listening to our neighbours or attending Australia Day community events.
We hope you can join us as we come together to support our communities.
Happy Australia Day!
