Proud Partner of the Australian of the Year Awards

We are proud to be a partner of Australian of the Year Awards, an annual ceremony celebrating and championing those who make our country a better place. We’ve supported the awards, which include Young Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year and Local Hero, for 37 years, making it one of the longest standing partnerships in Australia.

The awards honour an extraordinary group of respected Australians, whose actions inspire conversation on issues of national importance. The recipients are announced at a ceremony in Canberra on Australia Day Eve.

Modern Mateship

This year, we are celebrating the power of modern mateship. Being a mate is an Australian tradition, but it’s changed over the years to become a relationship built on helping others and coming together as a community, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.

Our Australians of the Year exemplify modern mateship; networked, open-minded individuals whose communities have helped them achieve amazing things. Watch our video.
