National Days | August

National Days of the Year | August

August in Australia. We’re pretty over the cold at this point. But the snippets of summer aren’t far off and before we know it we’ll be longing for the cold again. August holds some wonderful national days: Picnic Day, Relaxation Day and ‘Race Your Mouse Around The Icons Day’, which could be the strangest national day we’ve come across so far. Plus, one of Australia’s favourite and most respected actors (we love Noni!) was born in this month.

Our long list below contains all the days that matter in August!
