According to the Australia Day website:
“The tradition of having Australia Day as a national holiday on 26 January is a recent one. Not until 1935 did all the Australian states and territories use that name to mark that date. Not until 1994 did they begin to celebrate Australia Day consistently as a public holiday on that date.”
The WEAVE Festival has been running throughout the month of March at the Australian Museum, inviting a new interpretation of the large collections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Pacific artefacts held by the Museum.
