1st September Every Year
Wattle is a symbol of unity and resilience
we need both to get through these difficult Covid-19 times.
A number of planned wattle festivals and wattle-themed markets and library activities around Australia, have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the community.
National institutions and city councils are exploring other ways to celebrate this national day. For the first time, for example, a number are lighting up landmarks in shades of yellow to wish everyone a Happy Wattle Day…at a safe distance
Although 2020 is a year like no other, people are finding ways to celebrate all that we have in Australia
