Australia Day Awards 2018

Livingstone Shire Council’s annual Australia Day Awards program is held to acknowledge the valuable contributions made by local citizens and groups to our community.

The Australia Day Awards are administered by a local committee on behalf of the Livingstone Shire Council and the committee select each local award category winner.

Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a great honour. The Awards give the community the opportunity to publicly recognise and reward an outstanding person.

You are invited to be great and nominate a friend, family member, community leader or a colleague - the unsung heroes who you believe make Livingstone Shire a great place to live. Let’s give them the recognition they deserve!

L-R: Peter Conaghan, Citizen of the Year 2017 and Danielle McKenzie, Citizen of the Year 2018
