Celebrate Australia Day

Loddon communities will celebrate Australia Day next week.

Mayor Dan Straub said: "We come together as a community – and nation – to celebrate

Australia Day 2022.

"We respect the stories, histories and contributions of all Australians, especially those who

have sacrificed so much over the past year.

"We celebrate our nation’s place in the world – a proud, ancient, multicultural nation built on

shared values that allow us to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that other nations aspire


The day will also see community celebrations held across our Shire to recognise what it

means to be Australian, to acknowledge our rich history and celebrate the selfless

contributions of our volunteers.

Cr Straub said: "These celebrations are also a chance to reflect on the resilience of our communities and their spirit of helping and giving that defines the Australian way."

Recipients of the 2022 Loddon Shire Australia Day awards will be honoured at these

community celebrations. Presentations will also be made to winners of the Shire’s annual

Australia Day competitions.
