Australia Day in Victoria is a day for people from every walk of life to celebrate the things we love about our country. It is a time to celebrate our freedom – as individuals and as a nation; our lifestyle and culture; our land and its beauty, across beaches, forests, and the outback; our history and Indigenous past; and our opportunities and future.
From the smallest barbecue with friends right up to the thousand-strong People’s March down Swanston Street, the Australia Day Committee encourages all Australians to take pride in their country on January 26 and reflect on who we are as a nation.
