Australia Day

Photography by Dave Catley

I live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The beach pictured above is 15 minutes away from my house. I often stop and think about how beautiful this country is, and how lucky I am. I hope I never take it for granted. As with a lot of places, Australia has darkness in it’s history, but that discussion is for another time and another place. Today I am reflecting on the strength and beauty of my country and the people who reside here. We are celebrating the multiculturalism of our society with a street party BBQ this afternoon, where everyone is bringing a dish to represent their culture and heritage. Happy Australia Day to my fellow Aussies – we truly are the lucky ones.
