Australia Day / Invasion Day

January 26th is Australia Day and we celebrate with a public holiday where most of us will have a BBQ and a beer (or two!) with friends or family. Unfortunately, the holiday celebrates the day Captain Arthur Phillip landed in Sydney Cove to claim New South Wales as a British Colony and as such has been termed ‘Invasion Day’ by the Aboriginal community.

Anyhow, happy Australia Day!
