The Australia Day Council of NSW has launched a another big program to mark Australia Day 2016 which includes events that celebrate the many cultures that make up Australia and pay tribute to Australia’s traditional landowners and our newest citizens.

Liverpool City Council: Australia Day Celebrations
Woodward Park, Liverpool from 1pm-9pm
Tanya Davies said this is an opportunity for the community to embrace this year’s theme, Australia Day – Everyone, Everywhere.
“Australia Day is the perfect time to celebrate the important role every Australian, wherever they are, plays in our society. It is a day to stop and acknowledge how fortunate we are to live in this beautiful, diverse and free country,” Tanya Davies said.
“It is also an important day for many new Australians, who come from all corners of the world, and will take the oath at citizenship ceremonies across the State,” said Tanya Davies.
Australia Day Council of NSW Chairman, Angelos Frangopoulos, believes Australia Day is an opportunity for communities across Australia to come together, regardless of background, in a spirit of friendship and harmony and celebrate what makes each of us Australian.
“This year’s theme, Australia Day - Everyone, Everywhere, allows us to share your Australia Day celebrations with the world, whether it’s a BBQ with friends and family, a day on Sydney Harbour or even a backyard game,” Mr Frangopoulos said.
This Australia Day, upload a photo or post to your social media channels using #AusDay to add your special moments to the global map on australiaday.com.au and see how everyone, everywhere is celebrating.
“We’ll also be adding some fun online with the Aussie Slang Challenge, testing how well you know your Australian lingo. It is running on
