Australia Day and Awards

Council’s annual Australia Day Awards celebrate the achievements and contributions of individuals and community groups in the Shire. These prestigious awards are one of the highest honours Council can bestow to publicly acknowledge local heroes, whose dedication and contributions may otherwise go unnoticed.

Recipients of these awards are announced at our official Australia Day celebrations, held each year on 26 January.
