Colour slides of Australia : Sydney, Northern Territory and Victoria / by David Moore, 1965-19881965-1988

by David Moore
In 1988 Australia celebrated the bicentenary of the landing of the First Fleet in Australia. For the first time an Australia Day holiday was proclaimed in every state on 26 January. The NSW Bicentennial Council's logo was 'Let's Celebrate', so Sydney partied on 26 January 1988 with a First Fleet re-enactment, sail past, flypast, fireworks and concerts. Over 2.5million lined the Harbour and attended celebrations in the city.
