Australians of the Year 2017.

Reading about the recipients of the Australian of the Year awards and hearing their speeches each year stirs the pride I have in my country that lives in my heart and mind.

For 364 days of the year, year in and year out, there are so many of our fellow Australians who humbly go about their business each day making our country better for all of us.  They are not sporting stars, they are not celebrities and they are not famous just for being famous.  They have big dreams, big hopes and big hearts.  What keeps them going isn't the promise of another celebrity endorsement, more columns of press in the tabloids or another industry award.  It's something more noble and enriching.  So it's wonderful to be able to recognise just a few of these Australians today for what they've done for our country.

Happy Australia Day!


  1. I thought this Australian of the Year ceremony was the best yet. Nice not to see a sports person awarded for a change, a wonderful mix of special people.

    1. I agree, this year's winners were fascinating to read about as well as being so inspiring.
