Play School’s Benita Collings will be the Tweed Shire’s Australia Day Ambassador.

Ms Collings was a presenter on the popular ABC TV children’s program from 1969 to 2007, and would be a familiar face to many Tweed locals.

It is her fourth year as an Australia Day Ambassador, and she said she is looking forward to her first visit to the Tweed to meet the locals.

‘As an Australian, I’m pretty proud of my country and Australia Day is a way of saying that,’ Miss Collings said.

‘As Australians, we enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of worship – these are things that a lot of countries don’t have.

‘So for one day, it’s a time to come together and celebrate,’ she said.
