Australia Day Awards

Council celebrates the achievements of our community through Australia Day Award ceremony, held in Gutteridge Gardens each year.

Awards are presented for Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year and Community Event of the Year.

Council invites the community to nominate a person who has made a noteworthy contribution during the current year and/or given outstanding service to the local community over a number of years. 

Award celebrations kick off with a classic Aussie bush breakfast and free activities for the kids.

A traditional Aboriginal spiritual healing ceremony and a guest speaker presentation are highlights of the day. 

Anyone wanting to nominate an individual/group/event is encouraged to contact Council for further information.
