Western Australia Day was formerly known as Foundation Day and celebrates the founding of the Swan River Colony in 1829. This holiday occurs at a similar time to the Queen's Birthday holiday, which the rest of the country celebrates in June. In Western Australia the Queen's Birthday holiday is moved to September / October instead.
