Australia Day in Rundle Mall

Reflect, respect and celebrate

Celebrate what makes Australia great with a chance to reflect on and respect our nation and people with a free program of multicultural performances speaking to our country's past, present and future. Opening with a traditional Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony under the Gawler Place Canopy on Saturday 22 January, the celebrations continue each day until Wednesday 26 January, with multiple daily performances, musical acts and conversations from over 60 South Australian community organisations showcasing and delving into the rich cultural heritage of Australia. Australia Day in Rundle Mall is presented by the Australia Day Council of South Australia in partnership with the City of Adelaide and Vili's Family Bakery.

Rundle Mall will be open from 11:00am - 5:00pm on Australia Day, Wednesday 26 January.
