Australia Day in Orange
Each year the residents of Orange get together on Australia Day for a community celebration. Usually hosted in Cook Park, the ‘Party in the Park’ event includes fantastic music, great food, markets, an Australia Day ambassador and the presentation of community awards.
Orange Australia Day 2022 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.
