Australia Day 2017
All around Australia people will be celebrating Australia Day in their own way. Melbourne, however, will be the only capital city to hold a parade on the morning of the 26th January, 2017.
Between 11.00 am and 12 noon, a colourful procession of community and cultural groups will make their way down Swanston Street to be cheered on by spectators lining the street. Members of the Scottish community participating in the parade have been asked to meet at 9.30am on the corner of Bourke and Swanston Streets, Melbourne.
Others will celebrate with family or friends at home or perhaps at one of the many local community events, such as those listed on the Victorian government website www.australiaday.vic.gov.au
How will you spend Australia Day?
