The History of January 26

Thursday 26th January / posted by Matt Tomich

January 26. It’s the day the First Fleet of British ships sailed into Sydney Cove, raising their flag and marking the start of brutality and displacement for Indigenous Australians.

January 26. Invasion Day, Survival Day, Australia Day. Call it what you like, but it's currently a day of unbridled pride and patriotism for some, but has it always been the celebration we see today? What’s been the progress of Australia Day and January 26 over recent years?

Head of the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry at the University of Queensland, and Associate Professor of Australian History Martin Crotty joined Gina Williams on The Mag to shed light on the historical developments around January 26.
