Hinchinbrook Shire Council celebrates Australia Day on 26 January each year.
On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It is a day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. It is also an opportunity to reflect on our nation's history, and to consider how we can make Australia an even better place in future.
Australia Day celebrations reflect contemporary Australia: our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future.
In 1988 during our Bicentennial Celebrations the first Hinchinbrook Shire Australia Day Awards were presented and have become an annual tradition which is still upheld today.
Join Hinchinbrook in celebrating Australia Day on Thursday 26 January 2023.
These free festivities include an Australiana Concert, presentation of Australia Day Awards and the cutting of the Australia Day Cake followed by tea and coffee.
Time: 9.00am - 11.00am
The Australia Day Committee would like to specially invite those residents that share their birthday with Australia Day.
