LETTER TO THE EDITOR
AUSTRALIA DAY 2016
I am very proud to be Australian and I believe that we live in the very best part of this country.
We are a proud, inclusive and supportive community with a vast range of cultures and backgrounds, but what really makes our community great is the way it all comes together to create the Australia we know and love.
Diversity is founded in difference and yet when people come together so many similarities intersect.
Australia Day is more than a public holiday; it’s a time where we can get together with family and friends and celebrate everything that’s great about being an Australian, it is also an important day for many new Australians who come from all corners of the world and will take the oath at citizenship ceremonies across the our great region.
I encourage everyone to use this day as an opportunity to think about the importance and value of being an Australian and to be proud of who we are. This year the message is simple - Australia day your way, everyone, everywhere.
