In 2022, the Official Australia Day ceremony will be delivered online in two separate ceremonies.
Due to escalating numbers of COVID in our community, this decision was made to prioritise community safety.
Our community has so many deserving locals who go above and beyond to make a difference in our region. The last two years have presented many challenges including bushfires, floods and the COVID situation.
In the first online ceremony, we will congratulate these deserving locals with the announcement of the Port Macquarie Hastings Australia Day Award Winners and Nominees of 2022. A total of 19 nominations were received for this year’s Award categories, with 16 citizens and three Community Groups being nominated across five categories.

An online ceremony will be held to congratulate 28 community members as they make their pledge of commitment to Australia and officially name the Port Macquarie Hastings as their home.
These new Aussie citizens, hailing from all corners of the world, will be presented with their Citizenship Certificates after a solemn commitment to uphold the values, privileges and responsibilities of being an Australian citizen.
