Australia Day is a time to reflect, respect and celebrate.

This year, we reflect on the sacrifice of thousands of first responders and frontline workers. 

  • We respect their contribution and celebrate their courage.
  • We reflect on the resilience of communities and the spirit of helping, giving and supporting that defines us as Australians.
  • We reflect on our nation’s true history and celebrate our place in the world – a proud, ancient, multicultural nation built on shared values.   

Take a moment to watch the below video from our partner Auspire – the Australia Day Council WA and see how we’re all part of the story.
