26 January marks this specific event, today Australia Day celebrations reflect contemporary Australia: the diverse society and landscape, remarkable achievements and a bright future. It also is an opportunity to reflect on the nation's history, and to consider how can Australia become a better place in future.

On Australia Day, most people attend either an organised community event, or get together with family and friends with the intention of celebrating the national day. Many more spend the public holiday relaxing with family and friends.

Yet Australia Day is much more than barbeques and fireworks. It is more than another public holiday. It is more than the pride and excitement of new citizens who call themselves Australian for the first time on 26 January after being conferred citizenship.

12:00pm - Official Proceedings, Alexandra Oval Community Centre.

2:00pm - Family Fun Day, Alexandra Gardens and Ararat Outdoor Olympic Pool.
