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.

It’s time to put pen to paper and nominate a community member or local event for the 2020 Mount Alexander Shire Australia Day Awards.

We are looking for nominations for people who have made a real difference in our shire. There are so many people doing extraordinary things so complete a nomination and return it to us by 5.00pm on Friday 6 December.

• Young Citizen of the Year (aged under 26 on 26 January 2020)
• Senior Citizen of the Year (aged over 65 years on 26 January 2020)
• Community Event of the Year.

Eligible nominees must live in Mount Alexander Shire, be an Australian citizen and have given outstanding service to the local community over a number of years.
