This year Australia Day Council of NSW are promoting the theme: Australia Day – Everyone, every story…………….. In Australia, we all have a story. From our origins around the globe, to the future we hope to build. The freedoms we hold, the communities we build and the passions we enjoy – they are our Australian stories. We get to celebrate these tales every day. By getting out into nature or bringing the neighbours over. Joining in at the local club, street party, dance group or fundraiser. We express our customs. We share them with others: telling of our diverse experiences, passing on the learnings of ancestors, shouting our passion from the stands.
