Australia Day 2020

Australia Day 2020Australia Day 2020

On the 26th of January each year we celebrate our National Day 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 is for all Australians, no matter where our personal stories began. On Australia Day, we celebrate the things we love most about being Australian - our lifestyle, a sense of fair go, our shared values and cultural heritage, our connection to land, but most importantly, our people.

It is our nation's largest annual public celebration, and across Victoria there are hundreds of community events showcasing our diverse community and recognising those who make a difference to the lives of others.

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.
