Survival Day (Australia Day)

January 28

|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.
