Australia Day

Mornington Peninsula Shire will again support Australia Day community events happening around the Peninsula on Sunday 26 January 2020.

Community events will be happening in Hastings, Mount Eliza, Mornington, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento. These family-friendly events will have activities for all ages and are always well attended and enjoyed by the local communities.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend the events happening on the day. Attendance is free, with free entertainment as well as food and activities available to purchase. Many events have sausage sizzles. Check with you local organising committee about options to bring your own picnic lunch.  

Citizenship ceremonies and the annual Australia Day Local Awards are also held and celebrated on the day.

Australia Day 2020 will be a day for the whole community to come together and celebrate what it means to be an Australian, so pack a picnic and enjoy a fun day out!

This year, Mornington Peninsula Shire is focusing on reducing single-use plastics at events. Please consider the environment if packing a picnic and choose to refuse single-use plastics.
