August 2020 - Bravery List

The Governor-General has announced Australian Bravery Awards to recognise and celebrate the courage of 29 Australians.

“On behalf of all Australians, I would like to congratulate and thank the individuals being recognised today. Their deeds and selflessness are inspirational.

“The people receiving awards didn’t wake up in the morning and decide that they would be brave – each was faced with an unexpected situation and made a conscious choice, in the moment, to turn towards the danger and help others.

The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd)
