Australia Day 2021
This year’s Australia Day Celebrations will be different to those in previous years.
As we are unable to gather as usual, Council has made some changes and we are pleased to announce that you will still be able to celebrate with us by joining us online.
The Australia Day Awards Ceremony and the Citizenship Ceremony will still be held in the Picton Botanic Gardens, but our first objective is everyone’s safety so this year you will need a ticket to attend.
