Description - Australia Day by Jane Pfeiffer

All states and territories mark Australia Day on 26 January each year. It is a public holiday that allows people to reflect on what it means to be Australian. The date marks the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet from Europe which began the European colonisation of Australia. It is a time to reflect on the ongoing impact of European arrival on Aboriginal people for whom it is both a day of mourning and a time to celebrate their survival and endurance. It is also a day to celebrate Australias rich history of immigration that began with convict transportation. Australians celebrate or commemorate a number of special days throughout the year. These special days give us the chance to reflect on the past appreciate our lives and look to the future together.
