Australia Day Festivities 2020

Australia Day festivities will be held across the Alexandrina region at Goolwa and Strathalbyn, on Sunday 26 January 2020, commencing with traditional breakfasts in the morning followed by Citizenship Ceremonies and Australia Day Award presentations.

Strathalbyn will open the festivities at the Soldiers Memorial Gardens at 7:30am where you can purchase a hearty Australian breakfast, proudly prepared by the Strathalbyn Rotary Club. This year, the Club will charge $7 for their breakfast with all proceeds going to bushfire relief efforts.

Following breakfast, the Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony will commence at 9:00am, with the Australia Day Awards to be presented afterwards.

Goolwa’s celebrations will commence at 8:00am with a traditional breakfast available for purchase at the Goolwa Bowling Club on Goyder Street, thanks to the Lions Club of Goolwa. Breakfast in Goolwa will cost $10 (adult), $5 (child under 7) or $20 (family) with proceeds allowing the club to continue their contributions to the community.

The festivities will then shift to Centenary Hall on Cadell Street at 11:00am, where Goolwa’s Citizenship Ceremony will take place and Australia Day Awards are presented.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved in the celebrations, welcoming Australia’s newest citizens and congratulating our deserving Australia Day Award recipients.
