Location Event

  Australia Day
• 26th January
A day when we come together to celebrate Australia and being Australian. Celebrations are nation wide.

This day of remembrance marks the deaths and sufferings of brave men and women, who lost their lives in the fight to bring peace and harmony to the world.

It commemorates the landing at Gallipoli in 1915 (during World War I), which saw men from two countries, Australia and New Zealand, come together and fight as one, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
