Free Australia Day Celebrations in the City of Casey

Australia Day has been celebrated as a public holiday by all our states and territories since 1935, but has been observed since the early 19th century in one form or another. It is a day we set aside to reflect on what makes us a nation, to celebrate our achievements and to welcome new Australian citizens.

Many of us mark the day with friends, a BBQ get together or a day on the beach but across the nation people will gather at organised events. Those of us living in or visiting the City of Casey are being treated to a smorgasbord of Australia Day celebrations in 2015.
