St Florian’s Day – A message from the Governor-General of Australia

St Florian’s Day, named after the patron Saint of firefighters, is a day celebrating the bravery and commitment of firefighters.

Today, the Governor-General of Australia gives thanks to Australians in the fire service for their continued commitment, service and dedication to protecting their communities during nationally-declared emergencies in Australia. 

On Thursday 29 February 2024 the Australian Values Program and its online engagement channels will be closed. We would like to thank everyone who shared their stories or engaged with the Australian Values Program in its three years of operation through the website, X, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.

The values will continue to hold their place in our diverse and inclusive community through other initiatives, as well as playing an integral part of the visa application process and Australian Citizenship test. For more info visit the Australian Values page.
