The Order of Australia formally recognises Australians from all walks of life who, every day, make outstanding contributions to our communities and our nation. It is one of Australia’s most prestigious national honours.

Anyone can be nominated for the Order of Australia, at any time of the year.

Women—particularly those working in male-dominated industries—have historically been underrepresented in the awards. If you would like to find out about the nomination rates for women from your industry or sector, have a look at this Honours Branch Final Report.

Do you know a woman who inspires you? A woman who makes an exceptional contribution in her field? Nominate her for the Order of Australia today.
