Australia Day Celebrations


On Australia Day, 26 January each year, we publicly recognise the exceptional contributions, hard work and determination of people who make a positive difference within Corangamite Shire.

2018 Australia Day Celebrations will be held in Timboon on Friday 26 January 2018.

We have many champions in our Shire who do wonderful deeds in their community, who work quietly around our towns, drive kids to footy practice, deliver meals-on-wheels, perhaps volunteer with CFA or other community organisations or have just made a difference.  The Australia Day Awards are an opportunity for these people and/or community organisations to be recognised for their contribution.

Nominations are now open for Corangamite Shire Australia Day Citizen of the Year, Community Event of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year.

Nominations can be submitted on-line by clicking on the appropriate link below or hard copy forms are available from Council offices or downloaded at the foot of this page :

Nominations close Monday 16 October 2017.
