While most are happy as things are, we do seem to have a few options as to a more widely suitable day to celebrate being Australian.
Captain Cook’s Survey (Botany Bay) – 28th April 1770
Current Australia Day- First Fleet Arrival 26th January 1793
Federation Day – January 1st 1901.
Ned Kelly’s Birthday??
It may be worth us continuing the national dialogue, with a view to, when we become a republic sometime in the next ten years, picking a day for such change, when we are light on for a day off, (say in August) ?
