Australians celebrated Australia Day on Tuesday. The holiday marks the anniversary of the arrival and landing of the First Fleet of convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by Captain Arthur Phillip, on Jan 26, 1788. Day nine of the 2016 Australian Open also fell on Australia Day.
