What Is Australia Day?

For those who have been living under a rock or are simply tourists, it’s important to note that Australia Day is a major celebration in this neck of the woods. In essence, it is a national celebration that is based upon the anniversary of the arrival of a fleet of British ships at Port Jackson. Occurring in 1788, this day is celebrated for the ceremony involved with raising the flag at Sydney Cove to declare the founding of Australia. While British in origin, Australia Day is actually a celebration of the diversity that the island holds. Interestingly, the holiday itself was not a cohesive idea until 1935, when all of the states and territories of Australia decided to announce Australia Day as the name for the occasion. It actually took almost six decades for this holiday to be consistently celebrated by all of the territories. Modern times have helped to cement Australia Day as a major celebration, designating it as a nationwide holiday with weekday observance.
