Australia Day

Australia Day

Debate about Australia’s national day is a vital part of coming to terms with our history and reconciliation with Indigenous Australians. We’ve had lots of different dates over the years: HERE and most Australians don’t think we need to stick with 26 January: HERE

There are a number of campaigns to support. See Change the Date: HERE, the Sea of Hands Pledge not to celebrate Australia Day on 26 January:  HERE; Amnesty International’s online petition: HERE and direct action campaign Do It Ourselves: HERE

Attend the Yabun Festival at Victoria Park: HERE. There’s also a rally from 11am at Hyde Park and march to Yabun: HERE  

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
