How you can celebrate National Wattle Day

There is no one way to celebrate National Wattle Day and you are only limited by your imagination.

You might like to:

  • WEAR a sprig of wattle or the colours of yellow & green
  • PLANT a wattle in your garden or wattles in a grove or revegetate a landscape

  • GO FOR A WALK to enjoy wattles in flower around your garden, suburb, nearby bush or arboretum

  • ORGANISE a picnic, lunch, morning/afternoon tea, BBQ or dinner for your family & friends

  • ASK your local council to light up landmarks in yellow and green on 1 September (and then send us your  photos to display on this website)
