Do you know a local hero?

On Australia Day, the city recognises the outstanding achievements of community members and local heroes through the Playford Australia Day Awards. These awards acknowledge the valued work and commitment of our unsung heroes who give generously their time and expertise to help others.

Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a great honour and is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to someone who makes you proud to be Australian.
