The History of Australia Day

Australia Day is a national public holiday on the 26th of January, the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet in Australia. On that day in 1788, 11 convict ships from Great Britain landed at Port Jackson in New South Wales. There Governor Arthur Phillip raised the British flag to signal the beginning of the British colony.  Since the early days of the British colony, Sydney has marked the 26th of January using various names, such as Anniversary Day, First Landing Day and Foundation Day. This gradually evolved into ‘Australia Day’, and other states and territories officially adopted the name in 1935. Although celebrations originally focused on the anniversary of the British occupation of New South Wales, since 1979, the federal government began promoting an Australia Day that was less British and more Australian in the hope of unifying Australia’s increasingly diverse population. – read more here.
