Australia Day Long Weekend

Sutherland Shire Council acknowledges Australia Day carries different meanings for every Australian/member of our community.

We have chosen a program of events to be reflective of the Australia Day Council theme: Reflect, Respect, Celebrate.

Commencing with a sunset cultural ceremony and including major concerts, outdoor cinemas and pool parties at our Leisure Centres, we delivered an epic program for our community over three days.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day

Anzac Day – a time when we traditionally come together to reflect on the extraordinary sacrifices our countrymen and women have made in times of conflict. Sutherland Shire Council is committed to honouring the many local servicemen and women who have served and continue to serve our nation here and abroad.

We invite our community to honor and acknowledge our Australian servicemen and women and the Anzac spirit by attending services or joining broadcasts of services by our local RSLs or the Australian National War Memorial. Lest We Forget.
