Background

According to the Gregorian calendar, adopted by Europeans in Australia, New Year's Day marks the start of the new year. As a result, the Julian calendar was replaced with the modern solar year, which is slightly shorter than the Julian calendar.

Of The seasons have gradually become out of sync with their corresponding dates on the calendar. In 1582, the Roman Catholic Church introduced the Gregorian calendar by Pope Gregory XIII. 

Several European countries immediately adopted it, including Spain, Portugal, and parts of Italy, but it took hundreds of years for it to be adopted throughout Europe. It was first introduced in Great Britain in 1752.

A Gregorian calendar-based New Year is not the only one celebrated in Australia. For instance, the Australian tax year begins on July 1 the Asian lunar year starts on the second or third new moon after the December solstice, sometime between January 21 and February 20. The Hindu, Coptic, Jalali, Jewish, and Islamic New Year is also performed in some communities.

The Aboriginal Australians tracked the seasons before European settlers arrived in Australia. Their methods involved tracking weather patterns and plant life cycles. For instance, the people of the Crocodile Islands of Arnhem Land recognize six dominant flavors in their ritual life, movements around the land, and how they hunt. In light of the varying timing of these types of events, the relationship between them and the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year.

However, this type of calendar was dominant in maintaining the connection between Indigenous Australians and their land. The movement patterns of the stars were also dominant to many Indigenous Australians. They used this method to predict when certain plants were ready for harvesting or as soon as they append to their diet with migratory birds.
