Each year the District Council of Grant offers a different township the chance to host the Council’s Australia Day Celebration and Award Presentation.  This allows the township the opportunity to hold a family friendly, and affordable celebration in their community and Council is grateful to the many volunteers who assist in making these events successful.  Australian Citizenship Ceremonies are also held on the day if requested.  Pets are not permitted at this event.
