With something to celebrate every day, life got funnier
Australians are a fun group of people. We'll use any excuse to take the day off or celebrate with a drink. So why not have some fun events to celebrate in September.

I have compiled a list of September events to kick off your celebrations.

Perhaps you may know some more and share them with us in the comments section of this article.
