Australia Day Awards 2022
2022 Australia Day Awards - Nominations now open!
On Australia Day we celebrate being Australian together.
Recently our nation has faced fire, flood, drought and the coronavirus pandemic.
We reflect on the resilience of communities and the spirit of helping, giving and supporting that defines us as Australians.
We respect the stories, histories and contributions of all Australians, especially those who have given so much over the past year.
Australia Day 2022 is a day for us to celebrate and thank the people, groups and events in our community that stand out, go over and above, put others first and make the Lockyer Valley a great place to live.
Reflect, respect, celebrate - we're all part of the story.
