Launching Australia Day

I work for the Australia Day Council of New South Wales (ADCNSW) and on Thursday we launched the Australia Day Program for 2012! It was hosted by Kate Ritchie, the campaign spokesperson for AD2012 and it was a great success!

Check out this great video clip from the Daily Telegraph Online from Thursday. 

Australia Day is one of my favourite days of the year - it has been for a long time - even before I started working for ADCNSW. It's a day to reflect on how lucky we are to live in this amazing country and remember the things that make being Australian great!

The theme for AD2012 is "MAKE YOUR MARK, AUSTRALIA" and Aussies are encouraged to contribute a photo or a short film that explores the theme and celebrates the many valuable contributions Australian have made locally, nationally and internationally. There are some great prizes up for grabs.

I love being Australian!
