Australia Day

Australia Day

​​​​​​​​On Australia Day we come together as a community to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It's the day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. It's the day for us to re-commit to making Australia an even better place for the future.

Australia Day celebrations reflect contemporary Australia: our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future. It also is an opportunity to reflect on our nation's history, where we have come from and how we can shape our future.

Australia Day celebrations, which include the Australia Day awards and citizenship ceremonies, will be held as follows:

When: 9am Sunday 26 January 2020

Where: North Coast Regional Botanic Garden, Coff & Hardacre Street, Coffs Harbour. 

Entry is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
