Australia Day 2009

26 January 2009
Australia Day celebration at Penrith International Regatta Centre

Marcus and Catherine from Koala Retreat had set up their display under the Sustainability Centre. The estimated attendance for the day was around 40,000 guests, all enjoying the festival's atmosphere. A huge Australian Flag flew overhead, plus heaps of entertainment on the water and on stage.
Koala Retreat receives over 1400 signatures from the locals which was a great to see the support and the historical value koalas have to Penrith. Also thanks to the KR helpers for gathering the signatures, thank you to Angela, Maz and Lyn, which was a great way to support Australia Day 2009.
