Australian citizenship symbolises our unity as a nation. It represents a commitment to Australia and its people, the values we share and our common future.
Citizenship ceremonies are conducted at the Shire. One of the most popular Citizenship ceremonies is held during the annual Australia Day celebrations on 26 January or on Citizenship Day 17 September. Citizenship application forms are available from post offices. For more information call the Citizenship information line on 131880 or visit the Citizenship website.
Ceremonies are simple and dignified occasions. They can vary quite a bit but the main elements are:
The Department of Immigration and Citizenship confirm eligibility to participate in a ceremony by providing the Shire with a conferral report following the Departmental processing of your application The Shire will contact you to confirm when the next ceremony is being held.
The Australian Citizenship test resource book provides information on citizenship.
Does anyone in your town make you proud?
A part of the Australia Day family of awards, the Premier's Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards focuses on community contribution and participation rather than personal achievement.
These state-wide awards are exclusive to Western Australia and are designed to acknowledge and reward local residents and groups for their contribution to community life and their active participation in local projects. The three awards highlight active citizenship, outstanding contribution to the local community and Australian pride and spirit.
Nomination forms are available from Council offices and libraries. To download a copy of the nomination form for the Premier's Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards please click the link below. Submit your nominations on the official forms to the Shire of Irwin Office by the fourth Friday in November.

Each year our nation celebrates the achievement and contribution of eminent Australians through the Australian of the Year Awards by profiling leading citizens who are role models for us all. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia. The Australian of the Year Awards provides all Australians with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud.
The Awards operates at two levels - state/territory and national. State and territory selection committees select four finalists for each award category, with one of these finalists becoming the state/territory award recipient. State/territory award recipients then become the national finalists for the awards.
The prestigious year round program culminates in the announcement of the national award recipients in Canberra on Australia Day Eve. The Australian of the Year Awards is a program of the National Australia Day Council. For further information visit the Australian of the Year Award website.
