Australia Day is a day for all Australians, no matter where our personal stories began. It’s a day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history.

The Derwent Valley Australia Day celebrations will be held at New Norfolk's beautiful Esplanade with free family activities throughout the day. Refreshments will be available to purchase on site.

Official proceedings will commence at 12:00 noon, followed by the giving of our Australia Day Awards.

The categories for the Derwent Valley Australia Day Awards are:

  • Citizen of the Year

  • Senior Citizen of the Year
  • Community Event of the Year
  • Sports Person/Team/Group of the Year.
