From having breakfast with koalas to celebrating local heroes and rocking out to live music, Blacktown City Council has Australia Day celebrations covered.

Blacktown’s Australia Day begins with ‘Wake Up with the Wildlife’ at Featherdale Wildlife Park, before continuing with a special citizenship ceremony and the announcement of the City’s Citizens of the Year.

The day concludes with a free Australia Day concert at The Rooty Hill.

Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM said more than 20,000 people are expected to attend Council’s Australia Day events.

“We all have been incredibly saddened by the devastating bushfires and I have been deeply moved by the generosity of our community in coming forward with donations of money, foodstuffs, equipment and their time,” Mayor Bleasdale said.
