This page has a range of resources designed to help you in promoting and running your local Australia Day event.
The Australia Day Ambassador Program is the cornerstone of local Australia Day celebrations.
Every year the program sends over 300 high-achieving and proud Australians to towns and cities across the nation to inspire and unite communities, and drive participation in Australia
Councils who host Ambassadors receive complimentary Australia Day merchandise, including flags, lapel pins and certificates, and an invitation to attend the Ambassador Reception event to meet their allocated Ambassador.
Registrations for our 2019 Australia Day Ambassador program have now closed.
This year, we received over 100 invitations from local councils and shires across Victoria to have an Ambassador visit their towns on Australia Day.
Only councils who host an Ambassador via the Australia Day Victoria program receive complimentary merchandise.
Additional merchandise, including a range of certificates, are available to purchase online through Aussie Merchandise, a not- for-profit organisation. Visit australiadaysa.com.au/collections/awards
