Australia Day 2018

Australia Day 2018

On the 26th of January each year we celebrate our National Day, Australia Day in Melbourne and Victoria as the Victorian Government brings you a festive atmosphere with an array of fun activities and free events.

The 26th of January refers to the First Landing Day or Foundation Day, in 1788 when Captain Arthur Phillip, the first governor of New South Wales, arrived at Sydney Cove.

Australia Day in Victoria is a day for people from every walk of life to celebrate the things we love about our country. It is a time to celebrate our freedom – as individuals and as a nation; our lifestyle and culture; our land and its beauty, and the outback; our history and Indigenous past; and our opportunities and future.

From the smallest barbecue with friends right up to the thousand-strong People's March down Swanston Street, the Australia Day Committee encourages all Australians to take pride in their country and reflect on who we are as a nation.

There will be something for everyone to enjoy throughout the day – with family, with friends or with all the other Australia Day event goers.

PS: Australia Day (Thursday) is a gazetted Public Holiday

Enjoy Melbourne’s attractions and diversity.
