Australia Day Awards
Nominations are now open for the 2021 Australia Day Awards.
Scenic Rim Regional Council's annual Australia Day Awards program is held to acknowledge the significant contributions made by individuals and groups to the community. Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a great honour. The Awards give the community the opportunity to publicly recognise and reward an outstanding person. You are invited to nominate a friend, family member, community leader or a colleague - the unsung heroes who you believe makes the Scenic Rim a great place to live. Let's give them the recognition they deserve.
