The coalition government does not support this motion, as we believe Australia Day should remain our national day on 26 January, as do the majority of Australians. Australia Day is a day where, as a nation, we celebrate our shared values as well as the rich diversity of Australians, from our First Australians to our newest citizens. We are the most successful multicultural society in the world and we should celebrate and be proud of it.
