Awards are an integral part of Australia Day, they aim to recognise outstanding achievement during the past year and/or contribution to the local community over a number of years.
These unique individuals have given their time freely for numerous organisations throughout the LGA and are always the first to offer support and assistance to the members of the community.
Australia Day celebrations which are held on 26 January each year are an opportunity to recognise our community achievements, and to enjoy the artistic talents of residents, welcome our new citizens and to meet our Australia Day Ambassador.
2019 Australia Day Community Awards
Nominations are open until Monday 3 December for the 2019 Australia Day Community Awards. For further details and nomination forms visit the Create Community Engagement Hub.
Australia Day provides an opportunity for all of us to celebrate our wonderful country and recognise and thank those people who give so much to our local communities as well as acknowledging sporting and other outstanding community and creative achievements.
Give some thought to a community member or community organisation that you believe should receive recognition for their voluntary work and achievements.
To remember these special people we have compiled a Bellingen Shire Australia Day Awards Honour Roll.
