We have received some concern from members of the community about the timing of National Boat Day.
The 26th January is a day recognised by many Australians as Survival Day or Invasion Day.
In the interests of ensuring that both Survival/Invasion Day and National Boat Day receive the full support and attention they deserve,
we have decided to change the date of National Boat Day to Monday 27th January.
27th January, 11am to 2pm at Parliament Gardens
Do you suffer from Boat Fear or know somebody who does? Join us for the annual National Boat Day picnic.
National Boat Day is an opportunity for Australians to confront their fear of boats in a safe and caring atmosphere. Let us gather in boats to re-acquaint ourselves with a heritage we have come to fear.
Bring your friends, your families, your fears and a boat. Pirates, sailors, asylum seekers, stowaways & sea creatures. Inflatables, kyaks, tinnies, dinghies, canoes, sail-boats, and ocean-liners. All are welcome on Boat Day!
* Enjoy a boat picnic
* Have your boat-portrait taken on the steps of parliament
* Marvel at the monstrous Boatzilla
* Consult one of our Boat Fear therapists

WBT addresses the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land or does the land own us? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
