Wishing our cousins in the southern climes of the Commonwealth a happy Anniversary Day! Cheers mate!

Australia Day (previously known as Anniversary Day, Foundation Day and ANA Day, is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788, the hoisting of the British flag there, and the proclamation of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia.

Australia Day is an official public holiday in every state and territory of Australia, and is marked by the Order of Australia and Australian of the Year awards, along with an address from the Prime Minister.
