Australia Day 2020 - Awards & Community Celebration


Celebrate Federation Council's Australia Day in Howlong and enjoy a special day with your family.

Australia Day is an opportunity for our community to come together in the spirit of friendship and harmony, showcasing the unique and diverse culture that makes us Australian. 

While Australia Day means different things to different people, it is a day that welcomes everyone to reflect on their Australian experience – their past, present and future.  

The community celebration commences at 9am with the official Australia Day ceremony announcing the Federation Council Citizen of the Year, Community Project and Event of the Year, and the recognition of the Federation Council Local Achievers. The official formalities also include a welcome to the country, singing of the national anthem, light up federation and Australian citizenship ceremonies.

A breakfast BBQ provided by the Howlong Pony Club and Coffee Van will be available on the day for purchase. Musical entertainment will be provided by Barry Bird.

This event is proudly bought to you by Federation Council.
