Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio said he was glad that community activities were resuming following various covid-related restrictions over the past two years.

“I encourage residents to join the festivities marking our national day across the Region,” Mayor Antonio said.

“Regardless of where residents mark our national day, we continue to live in a special part of Australia.

“It is an occasion to reflect and celebrate the best aspects of living in Australia. We should not lose sight of our good fortune to live in this part of Australia, whatever views one might have about the significance of Australia Day.”

Toowoomba Regional Council Australia Day coordinating committee chair and Deputy Mayor Cr Geoff McDonald said local Australia Day organising committees and various Council staff had worked behind the scenes to organise community activities.

“Council and the organising committees encourage residents to fly the Aussie flag and join activities to share the national spirit,” Cr McDonald said.

“There is no better way to celebrate Australia Day than with other Australians. Australia Day is a fitting occasion to celebrate the many and varied attributes and values of our national character.

“Australia Day awards will be presented to our achievers and community-minded citizens. Councillors will be attending events across the Region.”

Mayor Antonio will present the Toowoomba service area Australia Day awards and the W. H Groom scholarship award at Picnic Point from 9.30am followed by two citizenship ceremonies at 1pm and 3pm at City Hall.
