New Delhi: Recalling the "warmth" of the people during his recent visit there, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today greeted the people of Australia on 'Australia Day' which coincides with India's Republic Day.

"Best wishes to people of Australia on Australia Day! Will always cherish the warmth of the people of Australia during my visit last November," the Prime Minister said in his message.

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on January 26, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the first fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Phillip.
