Reflect, respect, celebrate – we’re all part of the story.

On Australia Day, we reflect on our nation’s true history, which began tens of thousands of years ago with the First Australians – the world’s oldest living culture – and on the impact that European settlement had on our First Australians and their way of life.

We respect their extensive of knowledge of land, sea and sky, which allowed them to care for Country as they would a family member.

We reflect on our modern history – the waves of immigration that have shaped us into one of the world’s great multicultural success stories.

We respect that, regardless of where we come from, the faith we follow or the language we grew up speaking, we are all Australian and we all have a contribution to make.

And we celebrate our nation’s place in the world – a proud, ancient, multicultural nation built on shared values that allow us to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that other nations aspire to.

We celebrate Country and how the land and sky defines our Australian identity – from the saltwater to the freshwater, from the rainforest to the desert.
