The Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) will attend Wangaratta’s Australia Day ceremony on 26 January.

Mayor of the Rural City of Wangaratta Dean Rees said it was an honour for our community to host the Governor-General on Australia Day.

“Australia Day is a special day for residents who are becoming Australian citizens, as well as those we celebrate with community awards,” he said.

“To have the Governor-General present for this day will create lifelong memories for those people and mark a historic day for Wangaratta.”
