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.
