The Australian of the Year Awards are Australia's pre-eminent Award for recognition of leadership, vision, and the embodiment of great Australian values. They are Australians who make us proud.

There are four categories:

  • Australian of the Year
  • Young Australian of the Year
  • Senior Australian of the Year
  • Australia's Local Hero

The Australian of the Year Awards - which are administered by the National Australia Day Council and sponsored by the Commonwealth Bank - are set apart by the public nomination process: any one can nominate Australia's next Australian of the Year.
