Citizen of the Year Awards are held at Australia Day celebrations around the nation.
We host an event every year and a Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and a community organisation are recognised.
Nominations for the awards are called for in September/October.
Nominations for this year open Monday, October 2 and close on Friday, November 17, 2023.
The Australia Day organising committee, led by a councillor, chooses the award winners.
