Australia Day 2021 - Nominations and Guidelines


'Assisted by the Australian Government through the National Australia Day Council' 

On Australia Day Tuesday 26 January, 2021 we recognise what is great about Australia and being Australian. We take pride in who we are and promote diversity, harmony, social cohesion and respect for our fellow human beings. Through the Australia Day Awards we acknowledge the efforts and commitment of citizens who have made a significant contribution to our community and Australia as a whole.

In 2021, Colac Otway Shire Council will welcome new citizens and celebrate the achievements and contributions made by outstanding members and groups in our community at an Australia Day Award and citizenship ceremony in Colac on January 26. Council encourages the Colac Otway community to come along and join in the annual event.  Please note - the 2021 Australia Day event may be affected by COVID 19 restrictions and more information will become available over the next few months.  

 However - Australia Day Awards including the New Citizenship ceremony will go ahead but in a format to be advised.
