26 January - Australia Day
Australia is the only continent in the world without an active volcano. Australia has three times more sheep than people. The largest Greek population in the world beside Athens in Greece can be found in Melbourne Victoria. An Australian man once tried to sell New Zealand on eBay.
Australia Day, celebrated on January 26, is Australia's official national day, marked by festivities and celebrations, as well as civic events. Australia Day commemorates the arrival of Arthur Phillip with the eleven ships of the First Fleet at Sydney Harbour on January 26, 1788.
In Sydney, the country's largest city, the date is commemorated with a parade of ships near the Harbour Bridge. There are performances by entertainers in Darling Harbour, where, at the end of the day, the best ships in the parade gather.
The evening ends with everyone singing Advance Australia Fair (Australia's national anthem) in front of the illuminated and imposing Australian flag that flies over the bay.
The main ceremonies, and also the most traditional, are the presentation of the Order of Australia (Order of Australia) and the appointment of the Australian of the year (Australian of the year). Both events are intended to honor people who have achieved some honor for the country.
