The Australia Day event committee will host a small gathering of people to present citizenships to new residents and Citizen of the Year Awards.

The council says with concerns over the increase in positive COVID-19 cases in the city, it was the most responsible decision to cancel the event.

The council will film and produce a video to mark the occasion, which will be shared with the community.
