Everyone has a story to tell
Everyone and every story is the focus of Australia Day 2019.
This year’s theme typifies our life in contemporary Australia; a unique and beautiful country, where we all have a story to tell.
Each of our stories reflect our own backgrounds, who we are, our cultures, as well as our experiences and beliefs, making us the most diverse people in the world.
So let’s mark this Australia Day 2019 by telling and listening to these stories, whether it be as a proud Indigenous Australian, as a new citizen, or as someone whose ancestors came from other parts of the world.
Use this day to come together and communicate our stories while celebrating the freedoms we hold dearly and the communities we love and share.
Of course, the day also marks a significant beginning for many people as they become Australian citizens.
We welcome you with open arms and hope you will enjoy living in this wonderful part of the world.
Everyone has a unique story, so let’s share these as we celebrate all that we have in our great nation.
