Australia Day in the City is presented by the City of Adelaide and managed by the Australia Day Council of South Australia.

On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia: our land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy and, in particular our people.

History did not start with us; the fair, nurturing and abundant spirit of Australia was here from the beginning.

Australia Day is about celebrating what we have become as a nation, not how we started as one, and in acknowledging our indigenous communities and their welcoming nature, this is exactly what the team strives to deliver every day at the Australia Day Council of South Australia. (Houssam Abiad, Chairperson, ADCSA)

The Australia Day Council of South Australia (ADCSA) is an independent, non-profit, membership-based association.

Our purpose is to celebrate our identity and the values that unite us, to illuminate the achievements of inspirational Australians and to promote a welcoming and inclusive society. 

IMG_0006-1The ADCSA acts as an umbrella organisation for Australia Day events providing marketing support to help spread the Australia Day message. At local Government level, the ADCSA provides support to Councils and organising committees for their 130+ Australia Day events each year.
