On Australian Citizenship Day, consider getting involved in your local community by:
- volunteering at a local school, sporting organisation, environmental group, aged care facility or charity
- raising funds within your school, business or organisation and donating it towards a local project
- organising a barbeque for your family and friends
- welcoming new neighbours in your community.
The Local Hero category of the Australian of the Year Awards recognises ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their local community.
