Happy New Year! Our family is excited to start 2019 with a bang and can’t wait for the Australia Day long weekend celebrations in the City of Perth.

  • Checking out the Perth Sign at Yagan Square (Saturday 26 Jan – Monday 18 Feb 2019) – In celebration of Australia Day, the Perth sign includes the Aboriginal flag and Torres Strait Islander flag, and will also represent the 78 nationalities living within the Perth CBD based on the 2016 census for the Perth metro area. This Perth sign will sit in Yagan Square until 18 Feb, so come point your flag out out and use the hashtag #cityofperth
