On 26 January 2021, Copper Coast Council invites members of the community to come together to reflect, respect and celebrate Australia Day —because we are all part of the story.
Official Australia Day celebrations in the Copper Coast will be hosted at the Wallaroo Town Hall from 7.30am to 3pm.
Australia Day 2021 will provide an important opportunity for the Copper Coast Community to reflect on the challenges of the past year, respect the sacrifices and contributions of those who responded in a time of need and celebrate being together and being Australian.
Australia Day is also a day to reflect on our nation’s past—a history which began more than 65,000 years ago with the First Australians—the world’s oldest living culture.
Council has received a $20,000 COVID Safe grant from the National Australia Day Council, which has allowed us to still gear up for one of the biggest celebrations on the Copper Coast yet.
“We’ve invited local performers, services and hospitality vendors to be present throughout the day as we’re trying to get as many people in the community involved,” Mayor Talbot said.
“With stalls and entertainment, it’s sure to be a great day for the whole family—so be sure to bring a rug and set up for the day.”
The stage is set for local talents KWM Band and singer Tiff Reynolds to perform, while the comical musical stylings of The Funny Farmers will provide plenty of laughs.
The following awards will be presented on the day:
- Citizen of the Year - Linda and Malcolm Kinch.
- Young Citizen of the Year - Jacob Venning
- The 2021 Community Event of the Year - the Camelot Garden Stroll
