Order of Australia
The Order of Australia is the principal and most prestigious means of recognising outstanding members of the community at a national level and nominations are encouraged from all members of the Australian public.
The process from nomination to award
Nominating a person to receive an appointment or award in the Order of Australia can result in the valuable service of others being recognised. A nomination form is available on this website as well as on www.itsanhonour.gov.au or by contacting the Australian Honours and Awards Secretariat.
Nominations are generally processed in order of receipt and the nomination process can take between 18 months and two years.
