  • Territory Day is 1 July, the anniversary of the commencement of self-government on 1 July 1978.

  • Logically, yes. Asa, despite my many talents and growing array of Sailor Moon attacks, I do not have the power to rename public holidays. Yet.

  • Well, no, because Territory Day is a celebration of the territory as a whole. The same way Invasion Day Australia Day is a celebration of Australia, and as such is not called First Fleet Day. The first of July is just an appropriate day to do hold the Territory Day celebration because something significant happened on that day.
