Australia Day

Every year community members and visitors celebrate Australia Day across Murrindindi Shire with a number of events taking place, coordinated by dedicated and hard working community groups.  

Ambassadors also attend some of the events as part of the Australia Day Ambassador Program.

At the Australia Day celebrations three awards are presented to members of the community. Recipients receive these awards in recognition of their inspiring volunteering in Murrindindi Shire.

The Awards are: 

  • Murrindindi Shire Citizen of the Year
