Individuals and Travellers

Get active in your community

Active citizens help create a better Australia. Be an active citizen and give back to your local community.

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.
