Victoria Day 2019
Victoria Day is held on the 1st of July each year
We celebrate the Anniversary of the Separation of Victoria and New South Wales which occurred on 1 July 1851.
On that day, Victoria achieved not only its separate geographic boundaries, but also Responsible Government with the formation of the Victorian Parliament.
Other Victorian institutions included the Supreme Court and the Public Service also commenced on this important day.
Flag Raising and Award Ceremony
Traditionally on the 1st of July, at 10:30 a.m., there is a Victorian flag raising ceremony and a re-enactment of Governor La Trobe's reading of the proclamation at the Melbourne Town Hall.
At 11:00 a.m. the Victoria Day Awards will be presented by the Governor of Victoria, in the Lower Town Hall.
Attendance at the flag raising is free.
The Award Ceremony and Reception will be at a nominal cost (details to be confirmed).
