The AUSSIEVAULT website will be a “sister site” of the existing www.australiaday.com.au. While the existing site will continue to house information directly related to the celebration of Australia Day annually, AUSSIEVAULT will host a range of interactive campaigns and initiatives which explore Australian-ness, Australian values, and Australian identity and culture.
