Preparations for Australia Day celebrations in the Hilltops Region are underway, with three ambassadors set to visit the area to help residents and visitors mark the annual event. The National Australia Day Council recruits over 300 Australia Day Ambassadors who volunteer their time to attend Australia Day ceremonies across the country. Statistics provided by the National Australia Day Council reveal that four in five Australians see Australia Day as being more meaningful than just a day off, with 75 per cent of Australians believing the day should be a time to recognise and celebrate the country’s cultural diversity.
Event information for Australia Day celebrations across the Hilltops Region – including Australia Day Award ceremonies – will be listed on Hilltops Council’s website and
social media pages shortly.
The Australia Day Ambassadors for the Hilltops Region are:
Susie Elelman (Boorowa): 2018 will be the 20th year Susie has been chosen as an Australia Day Ambassador. Author, TV presenter, radio broadcaster, reporter and producer are just some of the many hats she has worn throughout a media career spanning four decades.
Mark Warren (Harden): The son of Ray ‘Rabbits’ Warren, Mark heads up ‘Warren Media’, a multiskilled media agency working across campaign placement, production, creative, talent and strategy through to delivery.
Zoe Naylor (Young): Perhaps best known as an actress, Zoe is also a journalist, MC, keynote speaker, writer, voice-artist and producer. Zoe has appeared on television screens as part of programs including ‘McLeod’s Daughters’.
