Resilient Australia Awards

The Resilient Australia Awards is a nation-wide program to recognise and promote initiatives that strengthen community disaster resilience.

Since 2000, the awards have showcased innovation and exemplary practice across Australia; celebrating achievements that might otherwise go unseen, and inspiring others to build greater disaster resilience in their own communities. The awards are proudly sponsored by the Australian Attorney-General's Department in conjunction with the states and territories.
