Australian Wattle Day

September 6 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

National Wattle Day has been officially celebrated since 1992 across Australia on 1 September.

Before then, Australians in different States and the territories celebrated their own wattle day on different days In July, August and September whenever the wattles were at their blooming best locally.

Wattles have long had special meanings for Australians and in 1988 the Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) was officially gazetted as Australia’s national floral emblem.
