The Australia Day Ambassador Program is facilitated by the Australia Day Committee (Victoria). The program gives a one of a kind chance to Victorians to meet moving Australian achievers.

On Australia Day Ambassadors go to in excess of 120 networks over the state to spread the message of national pride at different festivals. Diplomats take an interest in nearby exercises, help with the introduction of neighborhood grants and convey a short discourse on what being Australian intends to them.

Ambassadors are enrolled from differing fields, for example, human expressions, sport, science, business, government and diversion. They can be of all ages, however they all offer the normal attributes of accomplishment through diligent work, ability, and a solid feeling of patriotism. All demonstration in a privileged limit, unreservedly giving their opportunity to help commend our National Day.
