Australia Day Awards and celebrations

Smiling faces of award winners with Mayor Machin and MP Maree Edwards.

Australia Day is not just a public holiday. Each year Council hosts a family event for the community to get together to recognise our Australia Day Award winners, welcome our new citizens, acknowledge our history and celebrate what it means to be Australian.

Australia Day 2019 activities

Community event

Council held a community event on Australia Day where we recognised our Australia Day Award recipients and welcomed our newest Australian citizens. The crowd enjoyed a free barbecue lunch and entertainment including live music, a bouncy castle and face painting for kids.

Council worked closely with Upper Loddon Indigenous group Nalderun to plan the Australia Day activities, which included a Welcome to Country led by Dja Dja Wurrung Elders.
