Celebrate Australia Day across Gippsland South
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien encourages people and communities throughout the Gippsland South Electorate to celebrate and enjoy Australia Day 2018.
Mr O’Brien said local Australia Day events were being held in towns across Gippsland South, providing an opportunity to welcome new citizens and to celebrate everything that is great about Australia.
“Australia Day is a time of the year where we pause and reflect on the privilege of being Australian,” Mr O’Brien said.
“These events are a chance to celebrate the people who make our region special; and to welcome new Australians who are going to make our community even stronger.
“Citizens of the Year will be recognised across many towns in Gippsland South on Australia Day. These people have worked tirelessly to make our region a better place to live.
“Enjoy your Australia Day whether than means putting a sausage on the barbie, attending a public event or simply getting together with family and friends.
" I thank all the community groups and councils who are hosting the community celebrations, and making this public recognition possible.”
Mr O’Brien will be attending Australia Day events in Gormandale, Rosedale, Sale, Seaspray and Dumbalk.
