AUSTRALIA DAY Celebrations in Pictures
Every year, on the 26th of January, Aussies flock to their golden beaches and light their barbecues in celebration of Australia Day
Previously known as Foundation Day, it marks the official national day of Australia
Celebrations range from traditional Aboriginal dances, to tall ships racing from Sydney Harbour, to Vegemite wrestling
In the soaring heat, thousands of Australians turn out to enjoy the day's festivities
