If you want the fun version, head over to @jpbateson for a couple of super fun (and factual) Aussie Day lists
  1. 26 January 1788: the First Fleet of British ships arrived in NSW.
  2. They shoved their flag in the ground and marked their new territory.
  3. In the early 1900's they wanted a day to celebrate the birth of modern Australia .. All the states and territories eventually jumped onboard in 1935
  4. Australia Day as we know it, a day of celebrating our beginnings, our diversity and the day this beautiful big land was born.
  5. Ok, time to go slams some Tim Tams, have avocado and Vegemite toast and crack my first beer for the day :)
  6. To fact check, head here...
