About us - Australia Day Victoria

We create events and promote programs that encourage reflection, togetherness and support of the values and identity of Australia.

Australia Day Victoria engages Victorians in the celebration of Australia’s national day.

Australia Day Victoria is part of the Strategic Communication, Engagement and Protocol Branch in the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

As part of the State Government of Victoria, we work with all government departments, agencies and stakeholders to ensure that our events and programs are conducted inclusively in collaboration with our partners and communities.

As a member of the National Australia Day Council(opens in a new window) network, we work collaboratively with representatives across Australia to deliver an inclusive national celebration.

Australia Day continues to be popular with Australians. 75% of people believe it has a bigger meaning than just a day off.

We aspire to include recognition and celebration by all Australians of:

  • the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the traditional custodians of our land
  • their central importance in the great Australian story.
