Australia Day Awards 2021

Come celebrate Australia Day on Tuesday 26 January at the York Recreation and Convention Centre. 

Who makes a real difference in your community?

Each year on Australia Day, the Community Citizen of the Year Awards give local governments around the state the opportunity to acknowledge the contribution and celebrate community engagement of people within the community. Let’s Reflect, Respect and Celebrate community contribution across our state on Australia Day. We’re all part of the story.

Due to COVID and the subsequent lack of sport being played nominations for the Senior & Junior Sports Star of the Year will not be called
