Nominations open for 2023 Redlands Coast Australia Day Awards


The Redlands Coast community is being urged to celebrate local heroes by nominating them for a 2023 Redlands Coast Australia Day award.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the prestigious awards offered an exciting opportunity to recognise residents who had made inspiring and valuable contributions to our community.

“It’s that time of year to reflect on the last 12 months and acknowledge Redlands Coast’s high-achieving members and reward their efforts,” Cr Williams said.

“Council’s annual Redlands Coast Australia Day Awards are designed to honour local people who have brought a sense of community to our city.

“There are nine award categories recognising different accomplishments or involvements, such as working on Reconciliation with Traditional Owners, caring for our environment, or developing cultural activities and projects across Redlands Coast.

“If you know an individual, an artist, or an organisation who has demonstrated achievements that have helped make a difference in our community, I encourage you to nominate them.”
