On January 26, 1788 Captain Arthur Phillip took formal possession of the colony of New South Wales and became its first Governor. In 1946, the Commonwealth Government, States and Territories agreed to observe Australia Day on the Monday closest to January 26. In 1994 however, all the states and territories endorsed the celebration of Australia Day and it has been held on January 26 ever since.
