Golden Wattle (A. pycnantha) SD SearleCelebrate National Wattle Day on 1 September 

Since 1992 National Wattle Day has been 1 September in all of Australia's States and Territories. Before then, Australians in different States celebrated wattle day on different days between August and September.

Wattles have long had special meanings for Australians and in 1988 the Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) was officially gazetted as Australia's national floral emblem.
