The Golden Wattles are in bloom in the Otways...a change of season.
Septemer 1st is National Wattle Day.
“A ceremony was held on 1 September 1988 at the Australian National Botanic Gardens when the Minister for Home Affairs, Robert Ray, made the formal announcement, and the Prime Minister's wife, Mrs Hazel Hawke, planted a Golden Wattle.”
“Four years later, in 1992, the 1 September was formally declared 'National Wattle Day' by the Minister for the Environment, Mrs Ros Kelly at another ceremony at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. The Gazettal is dated 24 August 1992 and was signed by the Governor General, Bill Haydon, on 23 June 1992.”
If you love the Wattle, visit Pennyroyal and the Otways...the hills in some areas are golden yellow in celebration!!
