Nominate now for Australia Day Awards
Published on 18 November 2020
Goulburn Mulwaree Council and the Goulburn Australia Day Committee are calling for nominations for the local citizen, young citizen and event of the year awards.
Each year the people of the Goulburn area are invited to nominate fellow citizens or events for the prestigious awards. The awards aim to recognise outstanding achievement, or events held, during the past year and/or contribution to the local community over a number of years.
The 2021 Australia Day celebrations will again be carried out at Victoria Park, Goulburn on January 26th, in a COVID Safe manner. Council, along with the Australia Day committee, are planning for as normal celebrations as possible however this will be subject to change and will be dependent on the NSW Government guidelines as we approach January 26th, 2021.
Mayor Bob Kirk called on residents to take the time to nominate a fellow citizen, or a great event.
“Australia Day is an occasion to recognise the significant contributions of many to our region and the local community. We all know of many people who go the extra mile in Goulburn for charity, a sporting club or other community groups – let’s take the time to nominate someone, or an event, for these prestigious awards.”
“Certainly we have not been able to undertake events in a normal manner this year, but we know of many events that have adapted to the COVID-19 restrictions and still been incredibly successful – let’s recognise these achievements.”
Nomination forms can be completed online, at www.goulburn.nsw.gov.au/Community/Australia-Day-2021
