Queensland Greats Awards

These prestigious awards recognise outstanding Queenslanders for their lifetime of dedication and contribution to the development of our state and their role in strengthening and shaping our community. A special category was introduced in 2015 to posthumously honour individuals who have made an exceptional impact on our state. This category was once again included in this year’s awards.
