Investiture Ceremonies

Investiture Ceremonies are celebrations of the outstanding Australians recognised through the Honours and Awards system.

After recipients are announced (in either the Australia Day or Queen's Birthday Honours List) they are invited to attend a ceremony at Government House in the State or Territory in which they reside.

The Governor-General, state Governor or the Administrator of the Northern Territory present the awards in the presence of the recipient's guests.

Ceremonies are recorded and streamed so that recipients can share their special moment with family, friends and loved ones. 

All recent Investiture Ceremonies are available on the Governor-General's YouTube page.
