Australian Honours and Awards

Australia has a system of honours and awards to recognise Australians for excellence, achievement and meritorious service.

The Administrator conducts investitures at Government House for Northern Territory recipients of Honours and Awards. On certain occasions the Administrator travels to the recipient’s home community for the investiture ceremony. Recipients are announced during the year for Australia Day Honours, Queen’s Birthday Honours, Australian Bravery Decorations and other awards.

If you wish to nominate a Territorian for an honour, the forms can be accessed from the Governor-General’s website, www.gg.gov.au where you will also find information on the Australian Honours System.
