Happy Australia Day, Mates!

 

Australian FlagG’day! Many Americans may not know that today, January 26, is Australia Day. This is Australia’s national day in which the blokes down under celebrate “what’s great about Australia and being Australian.”

 

On this day in 1788, the British Naval commander Arthur Phillip landed in Sydney Cove (of course it wasn’t called that then) and set up the first European colony in Australia, New South Wales. He was subsequently appointed governor over New South Wales, which was to serve as a penal colony. In addition, Phillip also founded the city of Sydney.

So let’s join our Australian mates in celebrating Australia Day. So who wants to take me to Outback?
