About the exhibition

Every year the National Museum asks the Australian of the Year recipients in each state and territory to choose an object of personal significance that tells us something special about their lives, aspirations and experiences.

The stories of achievement from these remarkable Australians, the personal possessions that represent them and a set of original Australian of the Year Award trophies form the unique content of this engaging exhibition.

In 2020, the Australian of the Year Awards will mark the 60th anniversary of honouring and celebrating great Australians from all walks of life.

While it is not yet known who will be honoured in 2020, Australian of the Year 2020 will be sure to inspire us through its stories of achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia.
