Whether you choose to mark the day or not, there will be plenty of choice for those looking for entertainment and activities on and around Australia Day in the Sutherland Shire.
The Sunset Cultural Ceremony, staged each year on the banks of the Woronora River, welcomes local residents to share in the story telling and cultural traditions of the Dharawal speaking people who have been custodians of the land on which the Sutherland Shire sits for tens of thousands of years.
The event will take place from 5pm on Thursday, January 25, and local residents are invited to be inspired by the enduring strength of the world's oldest living culture, and the way it continues to be practiced and celebrated within the Sutherland Shire.
