Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Australia Day… for every citizen in our great wide land this national day of celebration represents something different. Family traditions for some, a day of reflection for others; the fact is that the beginning and growth of this great day is often lost in translation.
The 26th January 2009 marks the 221st year since our country was founded, with the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove. It wasn’t until 1838 that this day, ‘Australia Day’, was pronounced as an annual Public Holiday in New South Wales and over 70 years later, in 1910, that South Australia decided to look upon this day as one of national commemoration, not one purely for Sydneysiders.
While we are still part of a young country many events have occurred over the years which have enriched the meaning of this day from its British settlement establishment, to a day of cultural diversity and equality for all Australians.
For South Australians, Australia Day is about embracing all that is great and iconic about our state. It’s about Light’s Vision,  the Festival Centre and our city’s organised grid of roads surrounded by open parklands. It’s about Popeye, Frog cakes, Fruchocs and Pie Floaters. It’s about embracing our South Australian businesses that are born and bred.
Now in our 24th year of business, Toop&Toop proudly continues as South Australia’s largest family owned Real Estate Agency. With six offices across metropolitan Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula, we love this state and its people. Property is our passion and our door’s are always open to everyone seeking a market update or with a rental, sale or buying query.
When you’re next thinking about real estate, whether you’re at the cricket or enjoying a backyard barbie, think South Australian… think Toop&Toop.
Happy Australia Day!
