Release

Central Coast Council is proud of its commitment to serving the vibrant and diverse Central Coast community.
 
Council will fly the Australian Flag on Australia Day 2022, and proudly displays the Australian Flag at the Wyong Administration Building year-round, alongside the Australian Aboriginal Flag, Torres Strait Islander Flag, New South Wales State Flag and the Central Coast Council Flag.
 
Council has not stated that it will not be flying the Australian Flag on Australia Day 2022.
 
The banners that will line West Street in Umina on Australia Day 2022 commemorate 100 years of Ocean Beach Surf Club; a significant milestone that acknowledges Ocean Beach Surf Club’s contributions to the community for the last century.
 
Council has an annual program of installing banners in our town centres. These banners comprise of various designs which;

  • acknowledge some significant national occasions, including ANZAC Day and NAIDOC Week;
  • acknowledge and support significant local occasions and events, including Ocean Beach Surf Club Centenary;
  • support local businesses, including Council’s Buy Local campaign; and
  • celebrate our towns’ unique identities (identify flags) using bright colours and the town’s name.

Council recognises the historical significance of Australia Day on 26 January, and delivers annual, inclusive events that invite the whole community to come together. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Council’s 2022 Australia Day events at The Entrance Foreshore and Woy Woy Foreshore were cancelled due to public safety concerns.
