Each year we celebrate Australia Day across the region to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and acknowledge our history. And from car shows to thong-throwing competitions, each of our towns adds their individual flavour to their celebrations. In Emerald, we continue the tradition of the more formal Australia Day citizenship ceremony. Across all of our towns, we celebrate our people by awarding the annual Australia Day Awards.
