20 Years of Australia's Local Hero Award

Celebrating our Local Heroes

They’re often our most humble recipients.

The Australia's Local Hero Award recognises Australians making a significant contribution in their local community.

In January 2023, we’ll be inviting all our national Local Hero alumni back in honour of the 20th anniversary of Australia's Local Hero Award.

From delivering food to charities to making maths fun to advocating for victims of domestic violence, all our heroes have created real change at a grassroots level and represent the values of mateship, kindness, bravery and sacrifice.

Discover why these recipients from the last 20 years were so deserving.
