Australia Day 2024 – Friday 26 January
Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on the 26th of January, the date was originally chosen to mark the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships in Sydney.
Australians now recognise that our nation’s story began over 60,000 years ago with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Annual celebrations now reflect our diverse society and are marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new members of the Australian community.
It is a day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history. It is an opportunity to 'Reflect. Respect. Celebrate' with all Australians.
To celebrate, the Australian Embassy in Ireland would like to invite you to join us at the below events;
