It’s a whole brand new year again and Australia day is just a few sleeps away. As per Wikipedia, Australia Day is considered as the official National Day of Australia and is celebrated annually every 26th of January. It also marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and also the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip.
If you are coming to Australia Day on January 26, 2018, here are the top five things you can enjoy:
- LOTS OF PARTIES
They say some of the most looked forward to parties are happening in cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Darwin, Gold Coast, and many more. Prepare your party dresses and clothes as you will surely find yourself bar hopping from one place to another. Have a good time and enjoy with your family and friends. Note: Don’t get too drunk!
- AMAZING FIREWORKS
Australia is known to have wonderful and inspiring fireworks displays and the best fireworks display can be seen at the bridge near the Opera House in Sydney, Australia. Prepare your cameras and take photos of videos of the grand fireworks that they are going to show for the Australia Day!
