Australia Day Ambassadors
The Australia Day Ambassador Program aims to capture the true spirit of Australia Day by connecting high achieving Queenslanders to communities across Queensland to support the celebration of this important national day.
Australia Day Ambassadors include past recipients of the Australian of the Year Awards, talented athletes, medical professionals, business leaders, media personalities and community workers who provide inspiration and pride to Australia Day events.
Ambassadors generously volunteer their time and energy to contribute to celebrations. They participate in a diverse range of activities which have included providing an inspirational address, presenting Australia Day awards, judging contests, and meeting with locals.
Participation of an Australia Day Ambassador in community events is regularly cited as one of the highlights of community celebrations.
