We host a range of events across the calendar year for the South Australian community and beyond.
Funding and support comes from the Australian Government (via the National Australia Day Council), the Government of South Australia, the City of Adelaide, our membership base (including all SA Councils and corporate club), sponsorships, grants, merchandise sales and partnerships.
The Australian of the Year Awards again honoured incredible Australians who have gone the extra mile to create a better country for us all. We all know someone that goes above and beyond in contributing to a greater community – the quiet achievers, the community heroes, the leaders and the doers.
The Inspiring South Australian Women’s Award recognises the extraordinary contribution women make, in a voluntary or paid role, to advancing and enriching our society. It is an Award that celebrates women and offers people a chance to shine a light on the efforts and contributions of exceptional women they know – women whose tireless efforts can sometimes go unrecognised.
This Award celebrates high school students and young people who show outstanding commitment to their study of languages and cultures, and who advocate for a multilingual and culturally diverse Australia.
This Medal is designed to recognise outstanding public service – whether through leadership, service excellence, improved productivity and efficiency, or innovation in program, project or policy development.
Our Australia Day Program aims to
bring together all parts of our national story our First Nations’ ancestral

We will acknowledge all these aspects of our nation’s story.
26 January is a chance for all of us to reflect on what being Australian really means and how we connect with this great continent and its peoples.
