2019 Autumn - Australia Day Investiture

The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), as Chancellor of the Order of Australia, will invest 143 recipients at Government House on Wednesday 10 April, Thursday 11 April and Friday 12 April 2019.

“The contributions of these amazing Australians are diverse yet there is a unifying theme: they have dedicated themselves to service. They have worked tirelessly for others, to improve local communities and to make Australia a better place,” the Governor-General said.

“While typically they haven’t sought thanks or recognition, they deserve both. Their generosity, selflessness, compassion, dedication, commitment to service and energy inspire and motivate all of us.”

The four investiture ceremonies at Government House, Canberra will be held at:

  • 2:30pm on Wednesday, 10 April,
  • 10.00am and 2.30pm on Thursday, 11 April; and
  • 10:00am on Friday, 12 April.
