Her Excellency the Governor of South Australia the Honourable Frances Adamson is patron in chief of the Australia Day Council of South Australia and she attended the smoking ceremony conducted by Mr Sumner.

Later in the day, hundreds of people attended a Survival Day rally in Victoria Square in the capital city.

The rally also heard about political issues impacting Indigenous South Australians, including the Riverlea housing development where 29 sets of indigenous remains have so far been unearthed.
