Wollondilly’s Australia Day looks a little different this year…
Posted on: 18.01.2022
Wollondilly’s official Australia Day celebrations will be held at the Picton Botanic Gardens from 8.30am-12pm on Wednesday 26 January 2022.
However, this year’s celebrations will be a little different as Council is unable to gather as usual due to the current impacts of COVID-19.
This year a ticketed COVID safe Australia Day Citizenship and Awards Ceremony will be held in the Picton Botanic Gardens. Attendees will also get the opportunity to listen to Wollondilly’s Australia Day Ambassador John Stanley as he shares his experiences and insights as a long term broadcaster.
Tickets are limited so for those wishing to attend you will need to head online to secure a ticket
The Citizenship and Awards Ceremony will also be live streamed on Council’s Facebook page so people can still be involved even if they can’t attend in person.
Mayor Matt Gould said, “Although our Australia Day event will be smaller than originally planned, I’m glad that we will still be able to welcome our new citizens and acknowledge the achievements of our community during the awards ceremony. Wollondilly is a wonderful place to live and our Australia Day Celebrations are an amazing opportunity to recognise the special people that call it home and give so much to our community.”
