Australia Day Ambassador Program

The Australia Day Ambassador Program aims to capture the true spirit of Australia Day by sending high achieving Queenslanders to communities across Queensland to come together and support the celebration of this important national day.

Australia Day Ambassadors include past recipients of the Australian of the Year Awards, athletes, medical professionals, business people, television 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 a formal address to share their story, presenting Australia Day awards, judging baking competitions, and connecting with locals over a cup of tea.

Participation of an Australia Day Ambassador in community events is regularly cited as one of the highlights of community celebrations.

The 2020 Australia Day Ambassadors will be announced in December 2019.
