“We had a huge line-up of entertainment, including R&B star Paulini, Hoot and Hootabelle for the kids, as well as rides, food stalls and a fireworks spectacular.
“This event was a reflection of our rich cultural diversity which is celebrated and embraced by the whole community.
“Australia Day is a time to reflect on wider issues like the freedom of living in Australia and the genuine welcome we extend to all people who settle here,” Mayor Mannoun said.
“On the day, I was honoured to welcome 32 new citizens and their families to Liverpool. They have come from all over the world to make Liverpool their new home.
“I would also like to congratulate our Australia Day Award winners and Order of Liverpool Award winners. Our Australia Day Citizen of the Year, Dr James Toh, is a general surgeon, lecturer and researcher at the Ingham Institute where he teaches medical students in the South West Clinical School at Liverpool. He plans to continue his work at Liverpool Hospital, where he will serve the community as a surgeon and in cancer research.”
