Happy Australia Day

A wet Australia day 

Canterbury Council Australia Day celebrations...

Australia Day is on January 26 and commemorates the establishment of the first settlement at Port Jackson, now part of Sydney, in 1788. It is an opportunity for Australians to come together to celebrate their country and culture. There are reflections on the achievements of the nation and explorations of way to make the country even better in the future.

With over 150 different nationalities present in the City of Canterbury, living in harmony, with unity and respect, we have a lot to celebrate.
