The Australia Day Ambassador Program, proudly sponsored by Woolworths, provides a unique opportunity for Tasmanians to meet inspirational Australian achievers.
On Australia Day, Ambassadors travel to communities across the state to spread the message of national pride at various celebrations. Ambassadors participate in local activities, assist with the presentation of local awards and deliver a short speech on what being Australian means to them.
Across the country over 350 councils hosted an Ambassador on Australia Day, thanks to Woolworths.
Ambassadors are recruited from diverse fields such as the arts, sport, science, business, government and entertainment. They can be of any age, but they all share the common traits of achievement through hard work, talent, and a strong sense of patriotism. All act in an honorary capacity, giving freely of their time to help celebrate our National Day.
