Invasion Day is sometimes referred to as Survival Day and is held on what most Australians refer to as Australia Day, the 26th of January each year. The day commemorates the original invasion of the continent by the English colonisers, and the continued oppression of Aboriginal people since that time.

Every community around Australia is different, and in some communities there is no official recognition of this day with an official event. In Brisbane, however, the community holds an official march and oftentimes a concert.
