The Australia Day


A land of mixed religions and cultures is ready to celebrate its diversity. Yes its the Australiaa Day, marking the arrival of First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip on 26th January 1778.  The day also marks the remarkable journey of this astonishing country from being an abandoned land to one of the most prosperous and growing economies of the modern day world. As the country celebrates its success, here we look at few notable events taking place in Australia on the prestigious occasion.      


  • National flag raising and citizenship ceremony(Australian Capital Region)



The event involves a Flag Raising Ceremony featuring Australia's Federation Guard and the Royal Australian Navy Band. This is followed by a citizenship ceremony to welcome the newest Australian citizens.


  • Australian Day awards(Kempsey NSW)


This event celebrates the community members who have given their effort and time in betterment of the society.


  • Australia Day in Laurieton (Laurieton NSW)

  • Bay Historical Village Australia Day Celebrations(Historical Village & Museum, Queensland)


  • Michelin Australia Day(Port Melbourne, Victoria)

As the whole country celebrates this prestigious occasion it is crucial that we put aside the cultural differences and join hands together to build a better and peaceful Australia. We at desired living respect the cultural integrity and welcoming nature of this country. Australia in its history has never shied away from keeping its arm open to people from all around the globe irrespective of their gender, colour, race or religion.



We at Desired Living also would like to take the opportunity to wish Indians all over the world a happy and a prosperous Republic Day. On this special day India celebrates it 68th Republic day, marking the formation of one of the biggest democratic constitution in the modern day world. India has come a long way since the colonial rule to be in a position where they are today. A modern day super power, India takes a lot of pride in its rich cultural heritage and values. With enormous human potential, India would be a country to look out for in the 21st century.
