Last Updated: 21 September 2014

National Family Business Day

In September, Australia will celebrate National Family Business Day, a day designed to recognise the invaluable contribution family businesses make to the Australian economy, community and culture.

Tips to help you celebrate with your family, employees or clients

Family businesses are the backbone of Australia, with many of Australia's largest and most loved companies starting off as a family business. Iconic Australian brands such as Taylors Wines, Coopers Brewery, Akubra Hats, Rossi Boots, Raine and Horne, Haighs Chocolates, Maggie Beer, Myers, Ugg Australia, Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and even our most famous Aussie cossie – Speedo, started life as a family business – and many remain family owned today.

If you have any media inquiries or want to know how you can get involved, please contact the CEO of Family Business Australia, Ms Robin Buckham on 1800 249 357 or
