Australia Day

Each year the Launceston City Council presents Australia Day Awards to local residents who have demonstrated outstanding service to the community. The Community Event of the Year Award will also be presented to the person or group which has staged the most outstanding community event during the year.

There are four award categories:

  • Citizen Award
  • Young Citizen Award (under the age of 27 on 26 January the following year)
  • Sports Award
  • Community Event of the Year Award

The community can nominate a person or group who they think has contributed significantly though their work in our community.

A public citizenship ceremony is also held on Australia Day, 26 January at the Albert Hall. For more information about citizenship, please visit the Australian Government, Department of Immigration and Citizenship website.
