No Australia Day fireworks for Canberra or Queanbeyan this year

Local governing bodies have canned Australia Day fireworks in Canberra and Queanbeyan.

The decision comes in the wake of ongoing bushfire conditions and a total fire ban across the Territory.

The ACT Government says it will instead explore charity fundraising opportunities at the event, and the Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council will spend the cost of its fireworks on bushfire relief.
