Day to satisfy both camps

Dear Sir,
I know a resolution that should satisfy both camps.

As Australia Day in the past was actually celebrated on different days from state to state we should celebrate it on one of the other Australia Day dates that doesn’t fall on the 1st Fleet sailing into Botany Bay. July or August maybe?

It is interesting to note that Australia Day as we know it has only been unified with NSW to coincide with the 1988 bicentennial, thirty years ago – food for thought.
