    Thank you Martha, Lisa, Margaret & Don.

    Australia Day, celebrated on 26th January each year is the largest event in the nation & celebrates the anniversary of the foundation of the colony by Capt. Arthur Phillip in 1788. It is a holiday in all states when we celebrate & appreciate what's great about Australia & being Australian. There are many celebrations & Special Honours are given out by the government to achievers from all walks of life. This website will explain more:

    Margaret & Don – when Capt. Phillip landed on Australian soil in 1788 it was on the east coast at Botany Bay in N.S.W. so the cities & population grew from there. The biggest cities are actually all on the east coast.

    Thank you Martha, Lisa, Margaret & Don and well put Karen!

    We have had a lovely relaxing hot day with a bbq and a dip in our pool (it's only small 10 feet though I'm sure we could have fit 30 feet in it at a push but we didn't have that many people! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
