Each year the Governor takes great pride in hosting investiture ceremonies at Government House in Brisbane and in the north of the State to confer awards and honours presented to Queensland citizens who have made a difference to their communities.
While many people in the community know about the Order of Australia and the Australian Bravery Decorations, which are announced on Australia Day (26 January) and on The Queen’s Birthday public holiday in June, there are many other awards recognising community service, achievement, and service to the Australian Defence Force.
Investiture Ceremonies, September 2022
Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young PSM will present worthy Queenslanders with Australian Honours and Awards at Investiture Ceremonies to be held in Cairns, at Government House in Brisbane, and in Townsville during the month of September.

We regret to advise that due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the Cairns Investiture Ceremony scheduled for 9 September has been postponed and recipients advised.
