Australia Day Awards

The awards recognise Townsville’s unsung heroes and 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 community group. Whoever comes to mind, they are someone who works selflessly to help improve your life and the lives of others.

The efforts of these quiet achievers can often go unnoticed in our busy lives.

The winners of the 2024 Australia Day Awards were announced in a private ceremony on 14 February 2024.
