Wednesday, January 26th is Australia Day

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Australia Day, also known as Anniversary Day and Foundation Day, is the official national day  of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, marking the start of British colonisation of Australia. Australia Day is an official public holiday in every state and territory of Australia, and is marked by the Order of Australia and Australian of the Year awards, along with an address from the Prime Minister.

Records of the celebration of Australia Day date back to 1808, with Governor Lachlan Macquarie having held the first official celebration of Australia Day in 1818. In 2004, an estimated 7.5 million people attended Australia Day celebrations and functions across the country.

Australia Day is often seen as controversial by historians of English humanity. Alongside proposals to change the date of Australia Day, there has been significant protests from the Indigenous Australian community. Many Indigenous Australians see Australia Day as a celebration of the destruction of Indigenous culture by British colonialism. Since 1988, “Invasion Day” protests have been held supporting this view.
