With Australia Day fast approaching, it’s probably as good a time as any to work out how and where you want to celebrate. Every year there are tons of events on around the world, but mostly in Australia as you’d expect. How you celebrate, and where you go to celebrate, will depend largely upon which part of the country you’re in, and there are a few ways to find out what events are happening near you to make sure that you don’t miss out on any of the festivities.
In fact, you’re pretty much covered wherever you go, and you can find filter events by your state/territory and postcode if you head over to the Australia Day website. In fact, there are currently 63 pages of events for you to have a look through, so you’re all but guaranteed to find something suitable nearby, even in rural Australia. If you’re planning your own event, you can post it online to help more folk find out whats happening and join in.
You’ve got all kinds of events to choose from. Most states have fireworks displays in the evening, and there are citizenship ceremonies happening across the country as more and more people officially become Australian. You also have flag raising events, barbecues, and live entertainment.
Each state/territory also has its own website to help you find out whats going on and how you can get involved.
On a similar note, you can find out how to celebrate Australia Day in Sydney, which also gives further information on the ‘must do’ aspects of Australia Day 2018.
If you are planning to celebrate in Sydney, you should note that the fireworks display has been moved to Circular Quay.
Alternatively, Melbourne’s Australia Day fireworks display will be at Docklands, and you can catch the Australia Day Parade at 11:00am on Swanston Street in the city.
Now get your plans in order, then go out and enjoy yourselves!
