Kealy: Australia Day Celebrations
Australia Day 2019 was a wonderful celebration of community in the Lowan electorate on Saturday.

Across the region people attended Australia Day events and gatherings, enjoying the opportunity to come together and celebrate our Aussie way of life in its many different forms.

A huge thank you to all the community groups and councils who organised and ran local celebrations from those in our small towns to our regional centres.

A number of awards recognised the invaluable contribution that volunteers make to our community together with Citizen of the Year awards honouring those who have worked tirelessly to make our region a better place to live.

Order of Australia accolades were presented to several amazing and well-deserving local residents and I congratulate them on this outstanding achievement.

I welcome all our newest Australian citizens who took the oath of affirmation to Australia, just as I acknowledge the first custodians of our land, the Australian Aboriginal people.

We are lucky to call Australia home and while I understand the date is inflammatory to some, the intent of celebrating all the things that make Australia great should be celebrated.

We live in an amazing country which is filled with so many inspiring people – all with a different story to tell, different experiences and something different to add to Australia’s journey and growth.

Thanks to all Australians for adding their own special inspiration to what it means to be Australian.

Yours sincerely
