Australia Day

The City hosted its annual Australia Day Morning Ceremony at Sir James Mitchell Park on 26 January 2022. The Ceremony included the welcoming of the City’s newest Australian citizens, raising of the Australian flag, presentation of the Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards, and the Ted Maslen Memorial University Exhibition Award.

Australia Day afternoon looked a little different in 2022 due to the continuing uncertainty around COVID-19. The Celebration Zone which has previously taken place in the afternoon at Sir James Mitchell Park did not take place in 2022. Instead, there was four entertainment zones along the South Perth foreshore where families enjoyed the afternoon and viewed the City of Perth Skyworks in the evening.
