Australia Day celebrations begin on the 25th, with a screening of the Red Dog prequel, Red Dog True Blue, at Black Beach from 8pm.
On the day proper, breakfasts are being held at Jones Beach (7am), Surf Beach (7am), Jamberoo (8am) and South Werri (7.30am), before the Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony is held at Jamberoo School of Arts from 11am. There is also a Concert in Hindmarsh Park from 1-3pm.
Top it off with a visit to the Kiama Show, full of country tradition.
Kiama is honoured to have Jeremy Jones AM as its Australia Day Ambassador for 2018.
On winning New South Wales’ most prestigious honour, the Stepan Kerkyasharian Medal for Community Harmony, the Sydney Jewish leader was
applauded as being a world leader in interfaith dialogue and a champion of human rights.
Citing a list of contributions and achievements, from his high school days as a volunteer with Indigenous children, through to his pioneering work, in Australia and internationally, in interfaith dialogue and fighting antisemitism, the panel of judges said that his contribution had a profound positive impact on this state and nation. Premier Mike Baird said, “Mr Jones has demonstrated a commitment to building bridges between various communities and religious groups in our multicultural society.”
Mr Jones will be at the Jones Beach Breakfast and be guest speaker at the Australia Day Ceremony at Jamberoo.
