Australian Honours

Honours help define, encourage and reinforce national aspirations, ideals and standards by identifying role models.

Under the Australian Honours system, Order of Australia appointments – which recognise outstanding achievement and service by members of our community – are announced on Australia Day and the Queen’s Birthday each year.

Honours are given to recognise, celebrate and say thank you to those who:

      • make a difference
      • achieve their best
      • serve others.
