National Landcare Awards
The National Landcare Awards is a key biennial event which acknowledges and celebrates local Landcare achievements at a national level, and sees 65 finalists from across Australia featuring in nine diverse categories.
Held since Landcare’s inception, the State and Territory, and National Landcare Awards ceremonies showcase the achievements and history of Landcare and Coastcare, and above all recognises the invaluable contribution of volunteers to both the initiatives. Funded by the Department of Agriculture Water and Resources, with categories sponsored by Fairfax Media, Austcover and Rio Tinto, the National Landcare Awards are an opportunity to showcase the projects and partnerships around Australia that continue to strengthen Landcare participation and protect our precious natural land and water resources.
In addition to the nine diverse categories Landcare Australia also presents the Bob Hawke Landcare Award which celebrates an individual who has been involved in championing the Landcare ethic and inspiring others to take action on their own property or through a Landcare group. This award acknowledges an individual who has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to caring for the land; champions better practices; and gives their time to share knowledge with others so that they too can prosper.

This year, the 2018 National Landcare Awards will be taking place on 11 October at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
