Unfortunately the 2013 Australia Day Flag Raising Ceremony was cancelled due to inclement weather. Despite the cancellation, visitors to the Parklands were able to witness the traditional 21 gun salute fired at 12 noon on Saturday.
The annual Australia Day Flag Raising Ceremony provides invited guests and the public the opportunity to unite in celebration of the Australian spirit.
In previous years, the ceremony has been attended by the Governor of Queensland, Premier of Queensland and Lord Mayor of Brisbane, encompasses a unique display of the Australian Defence Force, including the raising of the Australian, Queensland, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, RAAF flypast and a traditional 21 gun salute.
Australia Day activities in Queensland are proudly supported by the Queensland Government and assisted by the Australian Government through the National Australia Day Council.
