Australia Day in the Valley

6th January 2021
Derwent Valley Council invites members of the community to come together to reflect, respect and celebrate – because we’re all part of the story.

Australia Day, 26 January, is a day for all Australians no matter where our personal stories began.

Derwent Valley Council invites members of the community to come together to reflect, respect and celebrate – because we’re all part of the story. It’s a day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate our community and acknowledge our history.

Australia Day celebrations at the New Norfolk Esplanade will commence at 10:00am and involve displays and activities with community groups, live entertainment, free Lions Club BBQ and food vans.

Maydena Community Association will also be holding a small free event at Maydena Park 10:00am to 2:00pm involving a walk to Junee Caves and a BBQ.
