About Us

The Australia Day Council of Western Australia (ADCWA), established in 1977 is a part of the ‘national family’ of eight State and Territory Australia Day Councils.

It is a non-profit incorporated body which supports the mission and objectives of the National Australia Day Council but enjoys autonomy in the management of its own day-to-day affairs.

ADCWA’s objectives are consistent with those of the national body, and specifically target all citizens of Western Australia, providing the opportunity to celebrate Australia Day, to grow together as one people and to help build a better Australia for future generations.

Australia Day is a day when we can all Celebrate what’s great!
