The Significance Of Australia Day

The significance of Australia Day have evolved over time. Unofficially, or historically, the date has also been variously named "Anniversary Day", "Invasion Day", "Foundation Day", and "ANA Day.”

A Negative Point

Some people do not like this day being celebrated. For example some indigenous Australians call it Invasion Day or Survival Day because it was the day that their native land was invaded.
