Not Long To Nominate For Australia Day Awards

Each year Ballina Shire Council recognises our local heroes through the Australia Day Awards.

However, there’s a catch for the awards to be successful – and that’s community participation.

We are urging you to nominate someone who is a local hero in your eyes. Whether they are a friend, family member, associate or community leader – if they are someone you admire or are inspired by, nominate them today.

Applications are now being accepted in the following categories:

  • Young Citizen of the Year (30 years of age or under)
  • Senior Citizen of the Year (60 years of age or over)
  • Local Hero
  • Sports Award (individual, team or administrator)
  • Arts/Cultural Award
  • Community Event of the Year

It is easy to nominate online at

Nominations close Friday 1 December 2017.

Award winners will be announced at the official Australia Day ceremony on Friday 26 January 2018 at the Lennox Community Centre.
