On This Day…1788


On This Day... 26 January 1788

On this day in 1788 European settlement of Australia commenced

When Governor Arthur Phillip raised the Union Flag at Port Jackson it marked the commencement of European colonisation of Australia.

 Happy Australia Day and remember – for the overwhelming majority of Australians – we all come from somewhere else in the very recent past.
