SOUTHERN Grampians Shire is inviting residents to Australia Day celebrations around the region tomorrow.
Mayor Albert Calvano said it would be a good opportunity to reflect on the great parts about life in Southern Grampians.
“Australia is a great place to live and we have a lot to celebrate,” he said.
“I would like to welcome all those who are becoming Australian citizens this weekend.
“This is a proud day for you and your families and a proud day for our region.
“There are plenty of other activities going on tomorrow including the presentation of local Australian of the Year Awards, and I would encourage people to get out and celebrate the great things people do to make our region a better place to live.”
Hamilton’s Australia Day events are being held at the Hamilton Botanic Gardens from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Scouts and Guides will be involved in the flag raising ceremony which will be followed by the Australia Day Affirmation and a musical performance by Hamilton Brass.
