Australia Day Awards and celebrations

Smiling faces of award winners with Mayor Machin and MP Maree Edwards.

Australia Day is not just a public holiday. Each year Council hosts a family event for the community to get together to recognise our Australia Day Award winners, welcome our new citizens, acknowledge our history and celebrate what it means to be Australian.
