Congratulations to our Richmond Valley Australia Day Award Winners.
Each year our nation celebrates the achievement and contribution of Australians through the Australian of the Year Awards. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia and for us, a better Richmond Valley. The efforts made by these individuals to excel in sports, to volunteer, to lead, educate or inspire the Richmond Valley community is to be commended.
