Australia Day 2019

Australia Day Celebrations were held in Luke Park adjacent to Lake Jerilderie. A thoroughly enjoyable evening was had with musical entertainment, raffle prizes and announcement of the 2019 Australia Day Awards.  A highlight of the evening was the spectacular fireworks display over the picturesque Lake. These fireworks are thanks to the Jerilderie Australia Day Committee raising funds through the year and the proceeds of the evening which are used for the next year's event.
