Australia Day Facts



Hello all here we are on the 27th January the Australia Day public holiday and being Monday I am doing five facts about Aussie Day.

Australia Day marks the arrival of the first fleet in 1788

In 1838, 50 years after the First Fleet arrived, Foundation Day was declared Australia's first public holiday in New South Wales. By 1935, January 26 was known as Australia Day in all states except New South Wales, where it was still called Anniversary Day.

It is a public holiday, and the significance of the day differs amongst the nation's population.

The first Australia Day: 30 July 1915. ... It was the original Australia Day, a national event to raise funds for troops wounded at Gallipoli. The date we now call Australia Day, January 26, to celebrate the British settlement of Australia in 1788, was in those days called Foundation Day.

For some it is a day of family for some it is a day off work, for others it is a good day to work and earn double the hourly rate, which is why Tim likes to work public holidays.
