    Like each year Australia Day was celebrated through out Australia on 26 Jan 2015. In Melbourne People from all walk of life from cultural groups to community groups participated in prime event of the day Australia Day Parade.

    Representing Sikhs for the first time, Sikh Volunteers Australia and Sikh Interfaith Council of Victoria also joined the Parade.

    Hundereds of Sikhs including men, women and children joined the march starting from Melbourne Town Hall and proceeding along Swanston Street and St Kilda Road. The Sikh turbans made them look different from others, and they received encouraging remarks, overwhelming applause and were very well received by the onlookers, who cheered and waved flags at them.

    Australia Day in Victoria is a day for people from every walk of life to celebrate the things we love about our country. It is a time to celebrate our freedom – as individuals and as a nation; our lifestyle and culture; our land and its beauty, and the outback; our history and Indigenous past; and our opportunities and future.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
