This is what the Australian web page for the Australia day says:
Australia Day, 26 January, is the day to reflect on what
it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary
Australia and to acknowledge our history.
On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia: land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy but particularly our people.
Australia Day is about acknowledging and celebrating the contribution that every Australian makes to our contemporary and dynamic nation. From our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - who have been here for more than 65,000 years - to those who have lived here for generations, to those who have come from all corners of the globe to call our country home.
The marking of 26 January is an important date in Australia's history and has changed over time: starting as a celebration for emancipated convicts and evolving into what is now a celebration of Australia that reflects the nation's diverse people.
Australia Day continues to be hugely popular, with 3 in 4 Australians believing it has a bigger meaning beyond being just a day off.
More than half of all Australians participate in Australia Day attending events organised by State Governments, local councils, community groups or getting together with family and friends. In addition, over 16,000 new Australians become citizens on Australia Day.
Eventet tar plass på Oasens kafeteria (Baker Brun) som holder til nokså midt i senteret (1etg).
Her kan alle som møter opp få tatt seg en kaffe og en skillingsbolle om det er ønskelig.
Men du trenger heller ikke velge noe som helst, og bare møte opp for litt sosialt samvær.
Kanskje noe har vært i Australia og har en ferie eller to å fortelle om?
Kanskje noen går med plan om å reise ned ditt i nærmeste fremtid?
Vi tar det over en prat, velkommen skal du være
26 januar, selveste nasjonaldagen til Australia.
Event start : 19:00
Event slutt : 19:30
