Australia Day Awards

Lake Macquarie Australia Day Awards

Nomination for the 2018 Lake Macquarie Australia Day Award are closed.

It is important to reward the people who carry out extraordinary, selfless work for the benefit of the community because it not only acknowledges their efforts, it sets a positive example for others to do the same.

The Lake Macquarie Australia Day Awards recognise outstanding individuals, groups and events that have significantly contributed to community life in our City.

The Awards are open to individuals and groups based in Lake Macquarie City, although their contributions may benefit the wider region.

Winners are announced at a special awards ceremony held in January in the Council Chambers. All eligible nominees are recognised at the ceremony.

Nominates were accepted in the following categories

Citizen of the Year

Young Citizen of the Year (21 to 12 years)
