The Australia Day Council of South Australia (ADCSA) is an independent, non-profit, membership-based association.
The Australia Day Council of South Australia was established by the South Australian Government in 1981 following the formation of the National Australia Day Council in 1979.
With the approach of the Australian Bicentenary in 1988, the Australia Day Council of SA was tasked with delivering quality, creative, innovative and diverse community events and being the custodian of sharing and enhancing Australian identity and culture.
We recognise inspiring people and communities through the:
- Australian of the Year Awards
- Citizen of the Year Awards
- Inspiring South Australian Women's Award
- Leadership in Languages and Cultures Award
- Public Service Medal.
We host a range of events across the calendar year for the South Australian community and beyond.
- Australian of the Year Awards Presentation Evening for South Australia
- Australian of the Year Luncheon
- Inspiring Community Leaders Award Ceremony at Government House
- Australia Day Program
Funding and support comes from the Australian Government (via the National Australia Day Council), the Government of South Australia, the City of Adelaide, our membership base (including all SA Councils and corporate club), sponsorships, grants, merchandise sales and partnerships.
