Australia Day this year falls on a Tuesday, so while it’s not a long weekend, we still have a ton of things happening.
This Australia day take the time to reflect on our history, respect one another’s stories and celebrate our nation and its people.
The Australia Day Council of South Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Jan Chorley says this year’s Australia Day theme is encouraging South Australians to “Reflect, Respect and Celebrate. The Story of Us.”
“We invite South Australians to reflect on this great land and its people as we embrace the spirit of Australia Day 2021,” she says.
“We reflect and pay respect to our First Nations peoples, we will honour our essential workers who have risked their lives to save ours and celebrate the diversity of who we are, our spirit and endless optimism as we look into the future.”
Australia Day is fast approaching which means it’s time to gather your mates and sort out where to head.
Normally Australia Day, Crush Festival, and Hottest 100 Day all inhabit the same weekend. This time however, they’re spread out with Australia Day falling on a Tuesday, so make sure you don’t mix up your dates.
With no further ado.
