We are a nation of stories. Each is unique as they’re formed from our diverse backgrounds and experiences. We base them on the learning from our ancestors – here for 60,000 years or only just arrived. We build them on teachings of wise women in our homes and dad's tall stories at the dinner table.
On Australia Day we come together to share our stories. Passed through our community, down to our children and often shouted a little too loudly in our pubs. Whether they’re weeping, wonderful, a corker or clanger, on Australia Day, all our stories count and are counted. Because no matter where we come from, we are all here together. We are the owners of our own story but we weave them together to shape our great home, Australia.
