It is this time of the year we celebrate everything that is Australian.

It is a time of the year that we look back and see what got us to the place.

It is this time of the year that we consider all the things that we take for granted.

It is this time of the year that we look forward to the future.

Without a doubt we are in the best country in the world.

We have the freedom of speech, we have a health system that is far superior to other countries in the world, we have a multicultural environment that allows for a diverse and rich place to live, and we have one of the best natural countries in the world.

Of course there is always things that we can improve and always things that we can better, but this takes all of us to achieve this.

The idea that we are separate people within this country is not an idea that I believe. We are one country, we are one people, and together all of us should celebrate Australia Day.

The me there is no better way than to celebrate Australia Day and having a barbecue with mates and enjoying the fantastic sunshine that this country offers.

I wish you all well, and have a fantastic Australia Day!

To celebrate here are some photos Anna graciously helped me with at very short notice last week.

Sit back and enjoy the best of Australia.
