The Australian of the Year Walk honours those Australians who have been recognised for outstanding contribution to our community through the Australian of the Year Awards. It recognises all Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year and Australia`s Local Hero.

Incorporated into the Walk are five metal strips set flush into the ground, forming the five stave lines to a music score, along with bollards to represent the notes of the Australian National Anthem.

Each bollard is topped with a plaque representing a year in history and that year's Australian of the Year award recipients.

The individual recipients of the awards are : -
