Australia Day activities

18th Jan 2022

Official Australia Day celebrations in Guyra this year will include an awards dinner and fireworks on January 25th, an Australia Day breakfast at Ben Lomond and a flag raising ceremony in Guyra on January 26th.
Special guest at the Australia Day dinner will be Antarctic Station Leader and 2015 NSW Australian of the Year Finalist Narelle Campbell. Narelle will be a guest and speaker at Australia Day activities across the Armidale region.
Armidale Regional Council Mayor Sam Coupland said Narelle’s personal stories will be a wonderful addition to the region’s Australia Day events.
“Narelle has a diverse career background, her work is extraordinary and we look forward to hearing all about her life experiences,” said Mayor Coupland.
This year’s Australia Day theme is ‘we’re all part of the story,’ an opportunity to reflect on our history, respect the story of others and celebrate our nation, its achievements and most of all, its people.
Tickets for the awards dinner in Guyra are available at GALA until January 21st. The cost is $25 and need to be pre-purchased as they will not be sold on the night. Fireworks at the Guyra Recreation ground will follow the dinner staring at 8.30pm.
An Australia Day Breakfast will be served at the Ben Lomond Hall starting at 7am. The cost is $10 per person and numbers are strictly limited. Please RSVP by Friday January 21st to Dorothy Every 0267332117 or Beth White 0267332014
A flag raising ceremony will be held in front of the Guyra Civic Administration building at 9am.
