I feel very fortunate to have been born and brought up in this amazing country.
I like to think we can be better in the future - more welcoming of new arrivals, more accepting of difference, more sensitive to our past.
I want to see the day we celebrate what is great about Australia changed so that all Australians can join the celebration.
We'll be heading out for a bbq and a swim later when the Doc is home from work. We'll get out those shorts and the Aussie beach ball - but not the tatts - they took waaaay too long to come off last year.
Are you celebrating today?
What does Australia day mean to you?
