Australia Day 2021
Next date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021 | 10:30 AM
On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate the things that make our country great: the people, the land, our diversity, sense of a fair go, lifestyle and freedoms.
This year, it's safest to come together from a distance. So, we have created a special event online to reflect on our national journey and commit to making our country even better in the future.
An online event link will be provided here closer to Australia Day on 26 January, 2020.
The online event will run from 10.30am and include music from the Billy Tea Bush Band, speeches from Surf Coast Shire Mayor Libby Stapleton, Australia Day ambassadors and Local Legends award recipients. A live Citizenship Ceremony filmed in the Council Chamber will conclude with singing of the national anthem.
This event was assisted by the Australian Government through the National Australia Day Council.
Please note: the Torquay and Anglesea Australia Day events will not be happening onsite this year.
