Australia Day is almost here everyone. This important national holiday commemorates the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Phillip.

To celebrate, Coach Bombay, Melbourne musician, has put together this excellent parody of Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya’ reworked into the unofficial national anthem of ‘Straya’ (a.k.a Australia).

 

For those who prefer more traditional Australia Day celebrations, check out the City of Cockburn’s website and the Events page at Cockburn Libraries website.

Happy Australia Day!
