Order of Australia Nominations

The Order of Australia recognises Australians for outstanding service or exceptional achievement. 

Everyone that is recognised is nominated by someone in the community. This means we all have the ability to recognise someone for their hard-work and service. It also means that it is up to all of us to ensure our national awards system represents our diversity - across gender, cultural backgrounds and categories of endeavour. The Governor-General of Australia has written to us and we are working with his Office to both raise awareness of the Order of Australia and improve its diversity.

Some of the awards you can nominate someone for include: 

  • Companion of the Order of Australia (AC)
  • Officer of the Order of Australia (AO)
  • Member of the Order of Australia (AM)
