Welcome to the 16,209 newest Australians who took their citizenship pledge today on January 26.

The greatest number of new citizens were situated here in Queensland, where 4,312 new Australians were welcomed from 115 countries at some 76 different ceremonies across the state.


In total 16,209 new citizens were welcomed from 154 different countries at 391 citizenship ceremonies across Australia. 


Rosie Batty struck a chord as Australian of the Year through 2015 for her selfless determination, and delivered her valedictory speech yesterday. 

The new Australian of the Year was announced as former Army Chief David Morrison.

Happy Australia Day!
