His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, will officially honour 79 outstanding men and women at a further four Investiture Ceremonies at Government House this week.

The ceremonies will recognise recipients of the Order of Australia, Conspicuous Service Cross, Distinguished Service Medal, Conspicuous Service Medal, Commendation for Gallantry and the Commendation for Distinguished Service.

His Excellency said men and women from all aspects of Australian life would be acknowledged.

“Australian Honours and Awards are a vital component of our social fabric. No matter which part of our country you come from and no matter what your background is, the Honours and Awards help define, encourage and reinforce national aspirations, ideals and standards by identifying people who make an outstanding contribution to society.”

“The record of service and achievement represented by the awardees is truly remarkable. We extend our heartfelt thanks for the tangible and positive difference you have made to the lives of so many others.”

“I look forward to hosting these very special ceremonies at Government House this week, and meeting the recipients, along with their friends, families and supporters.”
