Western Australia Day

Western Australia Day - Saturday, June 1, 2024

Cultural International Historical

Western Australia Day celebrates the day British captain Charles Fremantle claimed Western Australia for the British in 1829, setting up the Swan River Colony. While the day was originally called “Foundation Day,” it has since been renamed to include all Western Australians, including aboriginal communities. WA Day takes place on the first Monday in June, falling on June 1 this year.

Why We Love Western Australia Day

  1. Western Australian Pride

    WA Day, as it's colloquially known, is a public holiday in Western Australia — and also serves as a basis for the Western Australian of the Year Awards, which celebrate outstanding achievement in these categories: Community, Professions, Sport and Youth, Aboriginal, Community, and Arts & Culture.

  2. It's now more inclusive

    From a day that celebrated British colonization, WA Day has become a way to celebrate all Western Australians, no matter how long they've been in the country.

  3. It's a musical

    WA Day even has its own playlist — which can be found here http://www.celebratewa.com.au/toolbox/ — with plenty of classics all Western Australians are bound to love.
