It works with and for the community to unite the people of South Australia, to celebrate excellence in our communities and to debate and discuss our national identity.

The Australia Day Council of South Australia coordinates the Australian of the Year Awards for South Australia, celebrating the achievement and contribution of eminent Australians who are role models for us all. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia.

The Australian of the Year Awards provides all Australians with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud.
