We are honoured to have Michael Leunig the living legend Australian cartoonist, writer, painter, philosopher and poet as the Australia Day Ambassador. His commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than fifty years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world. The fragile ecosystem of human nature and its relationship to the wider natural world is a related and recurrent theme.
Australia Day Award ceremonies will also be held in Euroa, Graytown, Longwood, Nagambie, Strathbogie and Violet Town.
