Australia Day Breakfast and Party in the Park
Everyone is invited to come together for a family-friendly day out in Cook Park on Australia Day.
It’s a party in the park from 8am with children’s rides, a breakfast barbecue, colouring in and photography competitions, market stalls, a vintage car display, emergency services display as well as choirs, cultural dancing performances and more.
This year’s Australia Day ambassador, Catriona Rowntree, has been announced
The 2019 winners of the Orange Australia Day Awards will be revealed and we will welcome the newest Australian citizens.
There will be the annual monster raffle of prizes from a range of local businesses and tickets can be purchased on the day, with proceeds to go to a local charity.
It’s one of the biggest events on the Orange social calendar.
Orange’s party in the park is a perfect family day out to celebrate our cultural diversity and come together on our nation’s day.
If you are interested in setting up a stall, please give the stall coordinator a call on 0404 878 025.
Orange Australia Day 2019 Awards
The people of Orange are a wonderfully giving community.
Whether it be time, money, talent or advice, we all know someone who donates something of theirs to help and contribute to the betterment of others.
There are hundreds of unsung heroes in our city, whose commitment and dedication makes a significant, positive difference to someone else’s life.
It’s probably your cousin, your neighbour, your colleague or your close friend or family member.
They deserve public recognition and you could be the one who gives it to them.
There are six award categories this year for the Orange Australia Day Awards and everyone in the community is invited to nominate someone who is deserving of acknowledgment.
- The Citizen of the Year Award recognises an individual who has achieved something extraordinary, is an inspirational role model to others or who has made a sustained outstanding contribution to the local community.
- The Young Citizen of the Year Award recognises an individual under 25 years of age who has achieved something extraordinary, is an inspirational role model to others or who has made a sustained outstanding contribution to the local community.
- The Community Group of the Year Award recognises a group who has made a valuable contribution to the Orange community throughout the year.
- The Community Event of the Year Award recognises an event that has made a valuable contribution to the community. This will be determined both in relation to the quality of the event and the scope of impact on the local government area.
- Local Legend Award recognises a person who has moulded the Orange local community with outstanding, illustrious or renowned achievement.
- Business Philanthropy Award recognises a business that seeks to promote the welfare of others, especially by the generous donation of money or services to the community and good causes.
Think of the person, group or business you know who goes about their day giving and helping others selflessly and quietly and then nominate them.
They’ll probably be too humble to thank you for the attention but they’ll feel truly appreciated.
