Australian Citizenship Ceremony in Antarctica

Australian Citizenship Ceremony in Antarctica


From this time forward, I pledge my
loyalty to Australia and its people. It’s only the second time in history that
someone has become an Australian citizen in Antarctica and also it’s unique in
that the Antarctic weather has turned it on for us and it’s an absolutely
beautiful day. On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate the
cultures and traditions that migrants bring to Australia and the contributions
that they make. Terry, we all warmly congratulate you today for taking the
final step in your journey to become an Australian citizen and the contribution
you will make to Australia. I suppose personally I feel like I’m a full member of the team now. Becoming an Australian citizen in Antarctica is a great honour to be linked to this place in some way is quite special. This is an amazing
small and remote Australian community and so to welcome one of our community
into Australian citizenship is really an honour.
