Australia Independence Day Picture
The marking of January 26 in Australian history has changed with history and has changed over time. It begins as a celebration for the release of convicted criminals and now celebrates Australia, reflecting the diverse people of the nation.
This date has been a difficult sign for many Aboriginal and Torres Street Islanders who see it as a day of sorrow and mourning.
Australia Day, the sixth (January 26) is an honor for the establishment of the first permanent European settlement on the continent of Australia.
On January 26, 1788, Arthur Philip, who was on board a ship carrying prisoners in Sydney Cove, hoisted the British flag at the site. In the early 1800’s, history, known as Founding Day, was celebrated by politicians and New South Wales businessmen with private dinners. It then became known as Birthday, and the first birthday reggae in 1836, which is still held today in the Australian Day
Reggae and the world’s oldest cruise ship, Sydney Harbor. In 1838, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the township, the first official public celebrations were held. In 1888 there were centennial celebrations throughout the subcontinent, and in 1938, on the day of the 150th anniversary, the day was declared a public holiday.
In 1988, January 26 became a national public holiday, and in an effort to break the tradition in some areas to celebrate the closest Monday, an agreement was reached in 1994 that the holiday would be celebrated on the original date.
