AUSTRALIA’S newest citizens will take centre stage in Mansfield when it joins towns and regions around the nation to celebrate Australia Day and mark 65 years of Australian citizenship.

Two people from New Zealand and the United Kingdom will become Australian citizens at a special citizenship ceremony being conducted as part of our Australia Day celebrations.

The celebrations are being held at the median strip, High Street, Mansfield on January 26 from 9am.

“Australia Day is always a special day for Australians and with this year’s events also marking the 65th year of Australian citizenship there has never been a better time to celebrate the spirit and diversity of our country,” he said.
