Strathfield’s Australia Day Ambassadors Jonathan Coleman and Ian Rogerson of WSFM’s ‘Jono and Dano Show’ will present Council’s Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Awards. 

Mayor of Strathfield, Tony Maroun said Australia Day is great community event to bring people together at the start of the new year.

“Australia Day is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate all that is great about our country, past, present and future. It is also a day that symbolises the importance of community and coming together as one.”

“I look forward to seeing the Strathfield community join in the festivities, welcome new Australians and enjoy the live entertainment and children’s activities,” Cr Maroun said.
