Australia Day is all about celebrating who we are, our local community heroes and welcoming our newest citizens to this great nation.


The Bellingen Shire Australia Day Committee invite nominations for the 2018 Community Awards which will be presented at a ceremony to take place in Urunga on Friday 26 January in the following categories:


  1. 1.      Citizen of the Year
  2. 2.      Young Citizen of the Year
  3. 3.      Sportsperson of the Year
  4. 4.      Junior Sportsperson of the Year
  5. 5.      Community Service
  6. 6.      Community Group
  7. 7.      Community Event
  8. 8.      Creative Arts Award for persons 21 years and under


Australia Day provides an opportunity for all of us to celebrate our wonderful country and recognise and thank those special community members who give so much to our local communities plus recognising sporting and other outstanding community and creative achievements.  I encourage everyone to give some thought to a community member or community organisation that they believe should receive recognition for their voluntary work and achievements.


Closing date for nominations is Friday 1 December 2017.


Further details and nomination forms are available on Council’s website or hard copies are available from the Dorrigo, Bellingen and Urunga Libraries and Council’s Administration Centre.




Kind regards
