Australia Day

2015 Australia Day Guide

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.

The ongoing success of Australia Day is due to the wonderful planning and organisation by the Australia Day Committee
