Barbeques and black armbands: Australians' attitudes to Australia Day

Darren Pennay, Frank Bongiorno

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


    The Social Research Centre included questions on Wave 22 of Life in AustraliaTM to ascertain community attitudes to having our national day of celebration Australia Day on the 26th of January. The survey questions were not designed simply to explore whether Australians are in favour of or opposed to changing the date of our national day. Questions were also asked, among those opposed to 26 January as our national day, to measure support for other days/dates, and, importantly, to try to better understand the aspects of our culture and heritage that are most strongly associated with Australia Day.
