City celebrates Australia Day 2024

Media Release 5 January 2024
Australia Day
This Australia Day, the City of South Perth will welcome 101 people from 45 different countries as they become Australian Citizens.
The Morning Ceremony will take place at Sir James Mitchell Park from 8–9.30am, followed by the annual Great Aussie Breakfast, hosted by the Rotary Club of Como from 9.30–10.30am. 
Mayor Greg Milner issued an open invitation for residents to come along and join in the community celebrations. 
“Australia Day in South Perth will be all about coming together to celebrate life in our wonderful part of the world as well as recognising the incredible achievements of local community members and organisations,” he said.
“We’ll not only be welcoming Australia’s newest citizens, but we’ll also be presenting the Community Citizen of the Year Awards to outstanding individuals and groups who embody the spirit of our community.” 
“One local high school student will also receive the Ted Maslen Memorial University Exhibition Award, which recognises achieving the highest score of all Year 12 students in the City of South Perth.”
The Morning Ceremony is a free event and the Great Aussie Breakfast, hosted by the Rotary Club of Como, requires a small $6 donation for a hearty helping of breakfast – with the money going to local community initiatives.
Community members are reminded that there is no major fireworks event at South Perth Foreshore and that the best spot to see the City of Perth’s Hancock Prospecting City of Light Show is at Langley Park from 3pm.
