Australia Day events – You’re invited!

On January 26, the Shire of Dardanup together with the National Australia Day Council and community event organisers invite residents to come together to reflect, respect and celebrate – because we’re all part of the story.

The best way to do that is to do something Australian – get together with family and friends or go to a local Australia Day event.

Australia Day 2022 will provide an important opportunity for our Shire to reflect on the challenges and achievements of the past year, respect the sacrifices and contributions of those who continue to respond in this time of need and celebrate being together and being Australian.

We’re all part of the story of Australia – from those whose ancestors walked on Country for tens of thousands of years to those who came in the waves of migration that followed on to our newest citizens.

On Australia Day, we listen and respect each other’s stories, contributions and aspirations.

To connect our community, three Australia Day Breakfasts are being held on January 26 in the Shire of Dardanup which have been assisted by the Australian Government through a grant from the National Australia Day Council.

COVID-19

The health and safety of all visitors to Australia Day events is a high priority for the Shire of Dardanup. Please be assured that all of our outdoor events comply with State Government directives concerning Covid-19.

This includes a requirement announced by Premier Mark McGowan on Friday, 21 January, that wearing of masks will be mandatory at all outdoor Australia Day events.

We therefore ask that all attendees at Australia Day events:

  • Check in via the SafeWA or Service WA app
  • Practice good hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette and social distancing
  • Stay at home if you have attended a recently-listed exposure site or are feeling unwell.

DETAILS

Please note there will be a photographer capturing photos throughout the events. Please approach the photographer and let them know if you would not like to be photographed.

All events request a Gold Coin donation for breakfast and we ask that you bring your own reusable cutlery, cup, plate and a picnic rug or chair.
