Australia Day Awards

Who's your local hero?

Nominate them for an Australia Day Award!

Nominate and WIN one of five Aussie coolers! Terms and conditions apply.

The 2019 Australia Day Awards recognise Townsville's unsung heroes. The awards pay tribute to the special people in our community who have gone above and beyond to help improve the lives of others and contribute to a diverse, friendly and strong community.

This special person could be your neighbour, a friend or someone you have come across through your local school, church or sporting group. Whoever comes to mind, they are someone who works selflessly to help improve your life and the lives of others.

Thank a local hero who helped during this year’s monsoonal event by nominating them for an Australia Day Award.
