MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s Australia Day celebrations will include live music, entertainment, children’s activities, fireworks and lots of delicious food.
Events will be held at Mornington Park, Dromana, Hastings and Rye foreshores, Mount Eliza and Rosebud villages greens, Sorrento Bowls Club and Sorrento-Portsea RSL, each with its own flavour and attractions.
The shire-run event at Mornington Park will feature Kate Ceberano live on stage, while the kids will enjoy Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol, featuring appearances by Marshall, Chase, Skye and Rubble.
The mayor Cr Sam Hearn said Australia Day was a time to reflect on what it meant to be Australian and to recognise and celebrate the values we share. “We celebrate the things we love about our country and recognise the contributions of all Australians,” he said.
“It’s also a day to acknowledge our country’s history: from the recent past to the ancient traditions and culture of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.”
