Australia Day Awards Information Sheet


Celebrate what’s great in Flinders!

The Flinders Shire Australia Day Awards are an opportunity to celebrate individuals, community groups and events and their valuable contribution to our community.  

We are looking for nominees whose contribution, whether big or small, positively impacts our community.  This could result from exceptional service over many years or a stand-alone event where an individual has gone above and beyond the call of duty.  

If there is someone who inspires you and makes a difference in your life in the Flinders community, we want to hear from you! 

Nominations will be open from the 30th of July till the 18th of December, so community members can nominate when the opportunity arises.

Take the opportunity to celebrate and recognise those who make a difference in your community!
