Australia Day in Wyndham

Wyndham’s free Australia Day program took place in the beautiful surrounds of Wyndham Park in Werribee City Centre on Friday January 26 2024. It was a day packed with family entertainment including live music, outdoor games, sensory play, craft activities, roving performers and more.

The stage program featured a fantastic line up of family entertainment and global beats with much-loved children’s band Lah-Lah, funky brass tunes from Not My Circus, Bollywood dancing, reggae tunes from seven-piece Melbourne band Crown Heights and all the fun of a traditional bush dance with The Billy Tea Bush Band. A crowd favourite, Dr Hubble also entertained the audience with his incredible giant bubbles.

A highlight of the stage program was the presentation of the 2024 Citizen of the Year Awards – recognising the outstanding service of community members who make Wyndham a better place. Wyndham City Mayor Cr Jennie Barrera presented the awards to Melba Waugh (Citizen of the Year 2024) and Krushnadevsinh Ravalji (Young Citizen of the Year 2024) during a stage presentation on the lawn.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

Wyndham City Council recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first Peoples of Australia. We acknowledge the Bunurong and Wadawurrung Peoples as Traditional Owners of the lands on which Wyndham City operates. The Wadawurrung and Bunurong Peoples have and always will belong to the Werribee Yalook (river), creeks, stars, hills and red clay of this Country. We pay respect to their Ancestors and Elders who always have, and always will, care for Country and community today and for future generations.
