Australia Day Award winners to be recognised

TREMENDOUS Australian citizens from across the South Burnett will be honoured tonight.

The South Burnett Regional Council's official Australia Day Awards ceremony will be held at the Blackbutt Town Hall.

The award ceremony provides the community with the opportunity to acknowledge and reward outstanding groups and individuals committed to improving the lifestyle experience in the region.

Some new awards will feature at the ceremony this year, including the South Burnett Volunteer award and South Burnett Lifetime Achievement award.

Mayor Wayne Kratzmann said it was important to bring the 42 nominees into the spotlight.

"It really is special that we are able to celebrate Australia and congratulate all the great volunteers who make this region so great," he said.

"I would like to encourage people to come out whether it is wet or not and see the people being awarded for their amazing work on a voluntary basis.

"The amount of volunteers we have in the South Burnett is second to none and it is important to let them know we appreciate their hard work."

The awards ceremony will kick off a spectacular weekend of national pride as each town is holding a smorgasbord of opportunities to celebrate being Australian.

Doors will open at 6pm for the Australia Day Awards with a 6.30pm start.

The Blackbutt Town Hall is located on Coulson St.
