The theme for 26 January is Everyone, every story

In Australia, we all have a story. From our origins around the globe to the future we hope to build. The freedoms we hold, the communities we build and the passions we enjoy – they are our Australian stories.

We get to celebrate these tales every day. By getting out into nature or bringing the neighbours over. Joining in at the local club, street party, dance group or fundraiser. We express our customs. We share them with others: telling of our diverse experiences, passing on the learnings of ancestors, shouting our passion from the stands.

There are so many Australian stories to discover and share, and there’s no better time to do it than Australia Day.
