Australia Day Awards
Council’s annual Australia Day Awards recognise actions and abilities of groups and individuals that have enhanced the social connectivity of our community through personal contribution or through an event that has added value and enjoyment to the lives of others.
Douglas Shire residents and community groups are encouraged to nominate a dedicated citizen deserving of recognition for the 2021 Australia Day Awards.
Nominations are now open for the seven award categories celebrating those locals who go above and beyond for the community.
Council has launched a new online nomination form below to make it easier for the public to celebrate a local legend.
