Australia Day

Australia Day, 26 January, is the day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history.

On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia: land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy but particularly our people.

Australia Day is about acknowledging and celebrating the contribution that every Australian makes to our contemporary and dynamic nation. From our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people  - who have been here for more than 65,000 years - to those who have lived here for generations, to those who have come from all corners of the globe to call our country home.

Annually the Shire of East Pilbara helds an Australia Day Celebrations in Newman, Marble Bar and Nullagine.

The morning ceremony consists of Newman Citizenship of the Year Award, Australian Citizenship Ceremony, and Meet Australian Day Ambassador. Followed by a free Aussie Pool Party at Newman Aquatic Centre and to end the afternoon at The Square with a screening of our Twilight Movie Serie.
