His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, will officially honour 82 outstanding men and women at four Investiture Ceremonies at Government House this week.

The ceremonies will recognise recipients of the Order of Australia, the Public Service Medal, the Australian Fire Service Medal, the Ambulance Service Medal, the Emergency Services Medal and the Australian Corrections Medal.

His Excellency said the recipients of these awards have in many cases given decades of service or have been selfless in working for our communities.

“We are recognising and celebrating individuals who have reached the greatest of heights, whether it is via notable achievement, meritorious service or through positive contribution to the greater good of society”.

“These men and women will become ambassadors for excellence”.

“I look forward to hosting these very special ceremonies at Government House this week and meeting not only the recipients but their friends, families and supporters”.
