Today we joined hundreds of others to celebrate Australia Day with family and friends on Aldinga Beach, 45 km south of the City; one of the few beaches where you can drive your car on the beach.
Australia Day is a public holiday throughout the nation; a day on which we celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. On this day in 1788 the first settlers from Great Britain arrived at Sydney Cove.
In Adelaide on Australia Day, like elsewhere in the country, there a lots of community events. On returning home from the beach, I travelled into the city to watch an Australia Day parade followed by a free concert and fireworks display. I will be posting photos of these events later this week.
