Australia Day falls on January 26th each year, and it’s a national public holiday. Google ‘Australia Day’ and you’ll find numerous articles on its history, significance and how people celebrate it; you will also find a wealth of information on the official Australia Day website here.
You might also like to google ‘Australiana’. What student wouldn’t want to know more about football, meat pies, kangaroos, Holden cars, Hills hoists, lamingtons, Anzac biscuits – and Vegemite? (Although he/she might not like the taste of that last one…)
