Australia Day Ambassadors are high achieving and proud Australians who attend local Australia Day celebrations across the nation.

In cities, regional areas and in the country, over 300 Australia Day Ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to inspire pride and celebration in hundreds of local communities across Australia.

Australia Day Ambassadors are past  recipients of the Australian of the Year Awards, sportspeople, scientists, businesspeople, actors and community workers who provide inspiration and pride to Australia Day events.

Participation of an Australia Day Ambassador in community events is regularly cited as one of the highlights of community celebrations.

The benefits of having an Australia Day Ambassador at your Australia Day celebrations include:

  • The opportunity for your local community to meet and listen to Australians who have distinguished themselves by their contribution to their country
  • They are a drawcard for regional celebrations
  • The chance to hear stories of the Ambassador's achievements which illustrate the many opportunities Australia offers
  • The opportunity to reinforce the diversity of achievers in Australia.

To organise an Ambassador for your event please contact your State or Territory Australia Day Council
