There is no straightforward answer to this question.

Australia Day commemorates the landing of the First Fleet and the arrival of the first European settlers in Australia.

The first celebrations of the landing of the First Fleet were held in 1791, while Captain Arthur Phillip was still the Governor of New South Wales. By 1804, 26 January was referred to as First Landing Day or Foundation Day.

On the 150th anniversary of the landing of the First Fleet, the Australian Natives' Association (referring to Australian-born people of European heritage, not the indigenous people) advocated celebrating 26 January as Australia Day every year. By 1935, the term "Australia Day" was used among all of Australia's states and territories to mark the anniversary of this first white settlement.
