In 1818, January 26 became an official holiday, marking the 30th anniversary of British settlement in Australia. Australia became a sovereign nation, it became the national holiday known as Australia Day. In modern times, Australia Day serves both as a day of celebration for the founding of the white British settlement, and as a day of mourning for the Aborigines who gradually had their land taken away as white colonization spread across the continent.
