I FIND the “Australia Day” event in Fremantle, with the fireworks at the end, a refreshingly peaceful community/family day.
It seems a shame to have that ambience and opportunity completely chopped.
Could the name be changed to something that makes everyone feel comfortable and inclusive, on a different day to Australia Day – and maybe have a competition to choose an appropriate name for the event, e.g. Community Day? HELEN BENSON-HARRIS, Hilton.
