Australia Day Celebrations

Sunday, 26 January 2014 from 7.00am to 11.00am

Arrive to the familiar smell of the great Aussie breakfast barbecue and join in congratulating Australia’s new citizens who have made Mandurah their home.

The crowd will welcome new Australians at the Citizenship Ceremony and celebrate with the winners of the Premier's Active Citizens Awards.

Leave the event full of Australian pride and the sounds of ‘Advance Australia Fair' ringing in your ears.

The Mandjar Markets will also be trading all day along the foreshore.

There are no fireworks at the City's Australia Day Celebrations.


Recognition of a local person or group in the community that is making a positive difference

On Australia Day we recognise the efforts and celebrate the achievements of those nominated for the Premier's Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards.

The City of Mandurah invited residents to nominate an outstanding individual or community organisation for the Premier’s Australia Day Citizenship Awards. The three awards highlight active citizenship, outstanding contribution to the local community and Australian pride and spirit. Choose the one that suits your nominee:

  • outstanding community contribution by a local citizen
  • outstanding community contribution by a local citizen under 25 years of age
  • outstanding community contribution by a local group or community event

All nominees will be recognised at the ceremony, and be presented with a medallion and certificate. The respective winners will also receive a permanent commemorative bronze plaque in Mandjar Square. All nominators will also be invited to attend this celebration, along with their nominees and families.

Nominations closed on 22 November 2013, thank to those that nominated.

The Premier's Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards focus on community contribution and participation rather than personal achievement.

The awards will be formally announced on Sunday, 26 January 2014 as part of City’s Australia Day Celebrations, held on the Eastern Foreshore.
