Australia recognises St Patrick’s Day on March 17 each year.

Parades have been held in Sydney over the years, on the closest Sunday.

The State Library of New South Wales has a large collection of historic photographs depicting these celebrations, in particular from the 1930s, part of the Sam Hood Home and Away collection.

Our Pinterest page features many photographs from the collections depicting St Patrick’s Day activities.
