Australia Day on Lord Howe Island

Recent stories

The Australia Day celebration started with a big turnout at the sandcastle competition. This was followed by a flag-raising ceremony and keynote speech delivered by retired High Court Judge, His Honour, Justice Murray Gleeson.

The next day, there was an Australian Citizenship Ceremony where we welcomed four new Aussie citizens – Pia Funch Torres, Jim Drezet , Nicole Belliveau and Louise Gillespie.
