25 Anniversary celebration of the Wattle Day Association inc.

The Wattle Day Association Inc. celebrated its 25th Anniversary on 16 November 2023. Present and former members of the committees gathered next to Lake Burley Griffin Canberra to toast this happy occasion and cut a special cake.
Our aims are to raise awareness of two Australian government proclamations:  National Wattle Day is September 1 across Australia (since 1992) and the floral emblem of Australia is Acacia pycnantha (Golden Wattle) (since 1988).

Terry Fewtrell, member of the association since 2005 and former President, Vice-President and Secretary until 2023, reflected on the association. His inspiring speech can be read here: ‘Advocating for Wattle and National Wattle Day’ Terry Fewtrell for WDAs 25th Anniversary16 Nov 2023:
