Australia Day, January 26, is the day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history.

The natural beauty, a fair go for all, lifestyle, democracy and particularly our people.

Millions of Aussies flock to events all over the country to show pride in this nation.
