Australia Day Celebrations

Australia Day Awards

Charters Towers Regional Council encourages residents to reflect, respect and celebrate as they’re all part of the story of Australia.

The Charters Towers Region’s Australia Day Awards are a celebration and opportunity to recognise the valuable contribution that individuals, community groups and organisations make in our region. On Friday, 2 February we will be celebrating community members that have been recognised for being great at what they do, going beyond what would reasonably be expected in their profession, contributing to the Charters Towers region, and inspiring those around them.  The Charters Towers Region’s Australia Day Award Ceremony will be held at the World Theatre from 6pm Friday, 2 February.
