Do something special for a friend and nominate them for a 2024 Australia Day Award.
Nominations are now open across eight categories to celebrate Douglas locals who have gone above and beyond for the community in the past 12 months.
We have so many incredible, selfless and modest people who give back to the community.
Volunteers, sports stars, environmental advocates, artists, and every day high achievers will be recognised at the Port Douglas Community Hall on January 26 next year.
Australia Day Awards are open to residents and community groups that have made an outstanding achievement or contribution to the community.
Many of our friends are volunteers and are doing great things at sporting clubs and local community groups. This is an amazing way to show your appreciation for all they do in our community.
It will take only a few minutes to fill out an online nomination form today.
You can also ask our customer service staff for a form at the Mossman Administration Building and the Port Douglas Community Hub.
Nominations close on Friday, November 17, so spread the message and make sure a friend, doing great things in the Douglas Shire, gets the credit they deserve.
