Finalists for 2023’s Australian of the Year awards have converged on Canberra ahead of the awards ceremony.
Australian of the Year set to be unveiled
From community heroes to passionate advocates and Indigenous leaders, finalists from across the country have gathered in Canberra for this year’s Australian of the Year awards.
The 32 finalists across four categories have converged on the national capital for a series of events leading up to Wednesday night’s awards ceremony.
Among them will be a breakfast to honour the work of Indigenous finalists, as well as a lunch at the National Gallery of Australia.
The group of finalists will also meet with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese at the Lodge for a morning tea, the same event in 2022 where images were captured of former winner Grace Tame side-eyeing Scott Morrison.
