Saturday, 26 January, was the official celebration of our nation's foundation. It was a day for recognition with National, State and Local Government Awards being given to those who have made a significant contribution to our communities and the nation in general. Also, it was a day when many around the country chose to become Australian citizens.
In our local park, thousands gathered to celebrate with outdoor barbecue breakfasts (or lunch for the late risers!), to play tennis, cricket or football on the fabulous facilities Carisbrook Park provides or just to sit and enjoy the day with good friends and family.
In addition to mobile food outlets, there were many attractions for the children, but also some fascinating vintage motorbikes and a stunning old Rover car. The weather was just perfect too - a positive blessing after some recent temperature "scorchers".
