For those who are unfamiliar with this tradition, having Australia Day as a national holiday on the 26th of January is quite recent. In 1935, all the Australian states and territories agreed to use “Australia Day” as the official name to mark the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson.
Over time, its meaning has evolved and this holiday now reflects the diverse society and landscape of the nation. Since 1994, all of Australia’s states and territories have celebrated the 26th of January as the Australia Day public holiday.
As a result, this week, Gridders from our Sydney office will all enjoy a long weekend. If everyone has different plans to spend the holiday, one thing is certain, they are all going to enjoy it!
“Unlike most Australians, this year I’m going to take it easy and celebrate Australia Day by sitting outside my house with my dog – reflecting on how fortunate I am to live in such an awesome country.” – Eric Soun
“This Australia Day, I will be heading to the Sydney Harbour Bridge with friends and family to watch the Grand Salute to Australia by the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force combine their efforts to pay tribute to this magnificent country“ – Roshan Lanewala
“Australia Day for me is all about the 3 B’s – Beach, Beer and BBQ – spending time with family and friends, and celebrating how lucky we are to be living in the best country in the world.” – Alojz Kiseli
“Living in Australia for more than 3 years now, I celebrate Australia Day with my family being thankful for having the opportunity to live in such a beautiful country – And especially for having birthday in summertime on this side of the world!” – Cara Cristaldi
“As a French person living in Sydney, Australia Day is for me a good excuse to gather with friends and start sipping on a few beers at noon while listening to the Triple J Hottest 100 Countdown.” – Jean-Baptiste Aubrun
“There is nothing like spending Australia Day with friends and family at the beach. Although I’ll catch a few waves on my bodyboard, jumping on the Jetski to have fun on the ocean would probably take up most of my day. A few beers and a BBQ would follow to finish off an awesome day!” – Ivan Engelbrecht
“The Australia Day long weekend always sneaks up and is a great mini holiday just after getting back into the year and is generally much more relaxing than the hectic Christmas and New Year break. A trip to the beach is usually on the cards…” – Lorenzo Princi
