26 January marks a specific celebration, Australia Day. On Australia Day we come together and celebrate the things that make our country great: our diverse society and lands, our remarkable achievements and our bright future.
Australia Day is also an appropriate occasion to recognise and thank those members of our local communities who invest so much of their time and effort to ensure that we continue to enjoy a quality of life on Cocos.
The tireless work of such individuals and community groups forms an integral part in fostering national and community pride. The award foster, recognise and celebrate significant contributions to community life and active citizenship on the islands in the Territories.
Your local government invites you to nominate an outstanding individual or group for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands Australia Day Award 2018 to be presented on Australia Day celebrations.
Nomination Forms and Award Guidelines are availble by clicking the links below.
Nominations will close at 12 noon on Friday 22nd December 2017.
