Australia Day 2023 at Town Beach

Australia Day citizens


Broome's Australia Day 2023 celebration at Town Beach is an inclusive event to be held on January 26.

Organised in partnership between the Shire of Broome, Broome Lions and Lioness Clubs and other local service providers, the event is a celebration of the Broome community.

The Lions and Lionesses will be putting on a breakfast, starting at 8am, while there will be fun and entertainment for all the family – including music by local performer Dan Guidera, free train rides and waterslide for the kids and a thong throwing competition.

This year we will welcome 26 new Australian citizens and the special address will be by our Australia Day ambassador, Craig Hollywood. 

Craig was named 2022 WA Local Hero for his idea of offering free haircuts to people experiencing homelessness. Called Short Back & Sidewalks the program now has around 350 volunteers giving haircuts that have positively impacted the lives of over 10,000 people in need across Australia.

Another highlight of the day will be the presentation of the 2023 Community Citizen of the Year Awards, with winners to be announced in the senior, youth and community member categories.
