January 26 is the Australia Day public holiday, which falls on a Thursday this year. It’s a controversial date in Australia’s history – one that marks the beginning of colonisation – and in recent months there have been calls to change the date, including campaigns to move events like Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown. January 26 is also called Invasion Day or Survival Day. At Time Out, we’ve listed the best public Invasion Day, Survival Day and Australia Day events
