Wattle Day

 

Wattle is a symbol of unity and resilience and
we need both to get through these difficult times.

Despite the continued lockdowns, people are still finding ways to celebrate Wattle Day and all that we have in Australia.

From north to south and west to east, Australia's cities and towns are lighting up in yellow and green for National Wattle Day.

Is your local council lighting up its local bridges, monuments, fountains, and sculptures for Wednesday 1 September this year?  

If not make a request.

Townsville, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Launceston, Hobart, Perth and Bunbury are joining in. 

Check out what's happening near you!

How you can celebrate National Wattle Day

There is no one way to celebrate National Wattle Day and you are only limited by your imagination. You might like to:

  • WEAR a sprig of wattle or the uplifting colour of yellow

  • ORGANISE a picnic, lunch, morning/afternoon tea, BBQ or dinner for your family & friends

  • PLANT a wattle in your garden or wattles in a grove or revegetate a landscape

  • GO FOR A WALK to enjoy wattles in flower around your garden, suburb, nearby bush or arboretum

  • REQUEST your local council to light up landmarks in yellow and green on 1 September. (and then send us your  photos to display on this website)

  • ENCOURAGE your local markets to have a wattle theme in the lead-up to National Wattle Day - 1 September

  • SUPPORT your local primary school to celebrate the day.

  • CHECK OUT our 'For Schools' for ideas

  • SING a wattle song with the children in your life or recite a wattle poem
