LONDON, January 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The Australian national day is celebrated on January 26th, and is commonly known as 'Australia Day.'

This day marks the anniversary of the arrival of the first fleet of British ships at Port JacksonNew South Wales, and the raising of the flag of Great Britain by Governor Arthur Phillip in 1788. Due to the fact that it essentially marks the day on which Australia was conquered, some object to its name and would prefer to call it "Invasion Day."

Nevertheless, it is celebrated throughout all Australian territories as a holiday. On this day you will find an endless variety of community events, family barbecues, picnics by the beach, official award ceremonies, fairs and festivals, and of course spectacular displays of fireworks - for which the Australians are very well known.

This day brings together all Australians, to reminisce and celebrate their breathtaking landscapes, traditional culture, national unity and pride.

However, Australia Day is not just about taking pride in being a native Australian. During this day, Australians also celebrate the wide and ever growing diversity of population. With almost half of the nation consisting of foreign-born citizens, Australia Day holds Citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community!

One of the leading companies in the field of immigration to Australia is 'Australia GSM'. As an independent immigration company working with a registered MARA agent (The Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority) they offer professional, thorough services consisting of personal assessments and step by step navigation through the immigration process, assuring the candidate a simplified and well organized procedure.
