Friday, 26 January 2018

Australia Day is the perfect opportunity for residents of the North Burnett to come together to celebrate what’s great about Australia and being Australian. It’s a day for reflection on our achievements and taking pride in our great nation. It’s the day for us to re-commit to making Australia an even better place for the future.

The North Burnett Regional Council will be holding Australia Day Celebrations throughout the region, so come and join us this Friday, 26 January for an Aussie breakfast and congratulate our Australia Day Award recipients!  Bring your family, friends and neighbours and help celebrate what makes our nation great!

During our Australia Day Celebrations, we invite residents to participate in an Australian Citizenship Affirmation ceremony. The words of the Affirmation are based on the pledge made by new Australian citizens. These words express the values that Australians share and that make our country the fantastic place it is today. Reciting the Australian Citizenship Affirmation on Australia Day articulates our common commitment to our country, no matter what our personal reasons are for being a proud Australian.
