About the Wattle Day Association Inc.

Logo WDA with Association text


The Wattle Day Association Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-political, non-sectarian community-based volunteer organisation incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory in 1998. All Committee members are volunteers.

Our website and Facebook page are designed to be national resources for the celebration of National Wattle Day (including resources for schools) and information about wattle as symbol of Australia and Australians.

We welcome all who want to join us to promote the celebration of National Wattle Day for all Australians.


The aims of the Wattle Day Association Inc. are to promote:

  1. National Wattle Day (1 September) as a celebration of Australia and its people;
  2. The Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) as our national floral emblem and a unifying symbol for all Australians.


Key areas

During the three year period 2020 – 2022, the Association advanced these aims by:

a)   Actively pursuing sources of funding and sponsorship for promotion of the Association’s aims;

b)   Building and nurturing relationships with key strategic groups and stakeholders;

c)   Growing membership and interest networks; and

d)   Generating ideas and information and promote events/activities relating to the Golden Wattle as Australia’s national floral emblem and the celebration of National Wattle Day.
