Australia Day is a national day of celebration of everything that makes our country great – our people, our land, our diversity and our remarkable achievements. It also provides an important opportunity to acknowledge our past, reflect on our present and look together to our future.
All Australians are encouraged to take pride in their country and celebrate our national day on Thursday 26 January 2012.
In Brisbane the 2012 celebrations kicked off on Wednesday 25 January with the Australia Day Lunch. Hundreds of representatives from the business, government and not-for-profit sectors will came together to enjoy live entertainment, a keynote address by best-selling author and former Wallaby Peter FitzSimons and the best of Queensland produce and wine.
On Australia Day, The Parklands, South Bank, Brisbane was to host the Australia Day Festival, including the Multi-Faith Ceremony, Flag Raising Ceremony and AusSounds Concert. Unfortunately in 2012, the celebrations were cancelled due to wet weather.
Celebrations still occurred throughout the state with the Woolworths Ambassador Program sending high achieving Queenslanders to local community events to share their story and inspire pride in our nation.
