To all of our Australian followers: Happy ‪#‎AustraliaDay‬

Australia Day“26 January 1788 marked the proclamation of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia‬ (then known as New Holland). Although it was not known as Australia Day until over a century later, records of celebrations on 26 January date back to 1808, with the first official celebration of the formation of New South Wales held in 1818. On New Years Day 1901, the British colonies of Australia formed a Federation, marking the birth of modern Australia.”
