today is australia day.

it's australia’s biggest annual day of celebrations.
it's the day we celebrate

being australian

all things australian

and how fortunate we are to live in this glorious country

it's a day of pride.

Australia is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse nations on the planet

resulting from a diverse Indigenous heritage,

a British colonial past

and extensive immigration from many different countries and cultures

how lucky are we

to live here
