Australia Day Awards

Strong local communities are built on everyday people doing great things. Many of these people go about their business unnoticed however we should be celebrating our achievements and spurring people on to do great things.

The City of Newcastle Australia Day Awards are our opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary things we can do and are presented on Australia Day every year.

We are looking for inspirational role models to be nominated for Newcastle's:
  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Community Group of the Year.
These awards are for the quiet achievers as well as those more familiar high profile achievers. What they have in common is their ability to inspire others, overcome challenges and really make a significant impact on the people of Newcastle.
