Happy Australia Day!

Happy Australia Day from Henzells. We hope everybody has the opportunity to spend some quality time with the people they care about and reflect on how fortunate we are to call Australia home.

On this day we reflect on what it means to be Australian and celebrate the values we all share, and the things we love about our country including our home, our history and our people.

More than just an historical milestone, it is a day that unites Australians in recognising our diverse nation and embodying the values of unity, community and cultural diversity.

As the Australia Day Council reminds us, it is a time to reflect, respect and celebrate.

"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 the contribution 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."

This year, millions of Australians will attend Australia Day events, and more than 16,000 new Australians will become citizens.

On the Sunshine Coast we hope everyone has a chance to reflect, respect and celebrate in their own way, whether it is a picnic in the park or on the beach, a game of backyard cricket or a family barbecue. 

If you feel like getting out and about, Australia Day Fireworks at Bribie Island and Picnic in the Park at Buderim are some of the official local events that have been organised, with food vans, live entertainment, kids activities and more.

Have a great weekend everybody!
