Australia Day celebrations which normally take place in Berrima each year have been cancelled due to COVID19.

The decision has been made, following consultation with Wingecarribee Council, the Berrima Courthouse Trust and the Berrima Business Houses.

In a statement, Courthouse Spokesman Colin Gelling says they would not be able to guarantee the health and safety of the many thousands of people who attend.

However a Council Spokesperson says there will be a ceremony organised to present the Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year.
