Australians celebrate Australia Day today, 26th January, the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove in 1788. It is a public holiday, and a time to celebrate all things Australian.
We have had heavy rain this week and several official parties have been cancelled, but people will no doubt be throwing a chop on the barbecue and having a cool drink.
Brisbane is a modern colourful city. Here is a little bit of Australia for those of you who live elsewhere.
I love the mix of the old and the new.
Have a great day!
Thank you WordPress for Freshly Pressing me. What fun!
