Anyone else set foot in Australia on Australia Day?

Recommended Posts

My OH reminded me that today is exactly 15 years since I first set foot on Australian soil.

 

Anyone else, other than Captain Arthur Philip and me, who arrived on the 26th? I watched the Red Arrows fly around the harbour but missed the fireworks at night (jetlag). Stayed at a lovely hotel at The Rocks. Happy Days.

Sorry No. We didn't land here on the 26th. But have just spent our first Austria day here ! What a great day :) just had the most amazing firework display on the beach after a full day of entertainment organised by the local government. A public holiday dedicated to just celebrating being Australian. The uk could take a lesson from this. Happy Aus day Fleabo. And congrats on 15 years :)

Well i think its a great compliment that the whole country comes to a standstill to celebrate the day you arrived. You must have made a real impression 15yrs ago. :wink::wink:.

Glad you had a great day! We finished off ours down at Greenwich Baths for a well-needed cool off. Lovely stuff.
