Overview

The Australians of the Year Walk is a permanent record of the Australians selected to be Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year and Local Hero. Take the lakeside walk, read about these Australians and discover this symbol of national aspiration and achievement for yourself.

Search for the five metal strips that form the five stave lines of a music score. The plinths represent the notes to the music score of Advance Australia Fair, which can be read from West to East.
