Nominations now open for the 2024 Australian of the Year Awards

The Australian of the Year Awards gives Queenslanders the opportunity to nominate individuals who show courage and inspire us to make our own contribution to a better Australia.

All it takes is one nomination to recognise the significant achievements and contributions of extraordinary Australians who are making a positive difference within their community and across the nation.

Nominations can be made across four categories:

  • Australian of the Year
  • Senior Australian of the Year (those aged 65 years or over)
  • Young Australian of the Year (those aged 16 to 30 years)
  • Australia’s Local Hero.

The Queensland recipients of the 2024 Awards will be announced in November 2023 and will represent Queensland in the national awards in Canberra on the eve of Australia Day 2024.

Find out more about past recipients, and further information on how to nominate at the website. Nominations close Monday, 31 July 2023.
