In cities, regional and rural areas, more than 300 Australia Day Ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to inspire pride and celebration in local communities.

Ambassadors include community members, sportspeople, scientists, businesspeople, arts workers and former Australian of the Year Awards recipients.

The participation of an ambassador in community events is regularly cited as one of the highlights of the celebrations.

The benefits of having an 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 our country
  • Having a drawcard to gain the interest of attendees
  • 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.
