Happy Australia Day

26th January is Australia Day; Australia’s national day. Megan and I spent the day out and about exploring various events around the city. We stumbled upon entertainers and entertainment in most of the city parks we visited.

Many dressed up and were decked with Australian flags and national pride.

Government House, Victoria, was open for part of the day. The queues to get in were long and slow moving. It is a shame this property is not open more often.

The Australia Day People’s Parade floats ranged from marching bands to exhibits of the surreal.
