Monday Is Australia Day!

Posted on January 23, 2015 | 3 comments

Monday is a very important date in Australian history.

On January 26, 1788, the First Fleet of 11 ships from Great Britain arrived at Port Jackson, which now forms Sydney Harbour.

Captain Arthur Philip was The First Fleet captain.

In 1808 the day was celebrated as "Foundation Day" and "First Landing Day".

In 1888 it became "Anniversary Day" and wasn't until 1946 that it became "Australia Day" in all states across Australia.

Australia Day is a great day to come together and celebrate our country and culture.

Have a great Australia Day!

Love and Southern Cross
