History of Australia Day
Australia Day marks the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at New South Wales in 1788. The day also marks the rise of the flag of Great Britain in that location. Nowadays, the celebrations haven’t focused on the arrival of the aforementioned ships, instead concentrating on the diverse society and landscape of their nation. The parties will be held to welcome new immigrants, and some of the communities will organize some family events on that day. Before 1901, Australia was a young country, and they occurred federation in 1901. Only after the arrival of British ships, their population gets increase.
In 1935, Australia Day was celebrated all over the nation except New South Wales State. The people in that state had called that day “Anniversary Day.” From 1946, they, too, celebrated the day as Australia Day. The day marks colonization, but Aboriginal Australians sometimes feel that their celebrations exclude them. It was renamed “Invasion Day,” and the protests happened with side-by-side parties.
