|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 28 of January, repeating indefinitely

Survival Day (Australia Day) is a National holiday and marks the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet.

For Indigenous Australians the invasion of their land by Europeans is not something to celebrate. Sometimes¬† referred to as “Invasion Day” or “Survival Day”, many in the community advocate that the date (of our National Day) should be changed.
