2010 Centennial Celebrations of Wattle Day

National Wattle Day is celebrated throughout Australia on the 1st September each year. This year, the Centennial Celebrations of Wattle Day will be held in Canberra, organized by the Wattle Day Association.

 

The day was originally conceived as a day to demonstrate patriotism for the new nation of Australia by wearing a sprig of wattle. The day now has wider significance as a day to celebrate our natural environment, our flora, our rainforests and bushland, our coastal heathlands and desert dunes. The sprig of wattle should encourage us to preserve our fragile environment, so that future generations will experience the joy of seeing our bushland light up each spring with golden bloom.


National Wattle Day gives us a chance to demonstrate our collective pride in all things Australian. For many years now our athletes have worn green and gold, our national colours inspired by the Wattle.

When:  01 September 2010

Time:  7 PM

Where:  Teatro Vivaldi Restaurant, The Australian National University, Canberra
