Oz Day Awards Ceremony Cancelled
Decision not made lightly.
No Australia Day Awards ceremony will take place in the Wentworth Shire this year.
Council has decided to cancel its ceremony, as there has been a lack of nominations, making the event unviable.
There has also not been requests from any community members to become an Australian citizen on the day.
Planned Australia Day events will continue to take place, in Wentworth, Dareton, Pooncarie and Buronga.
Wentworth Shire Council says the decision to cancel the awards celebration was not made lightly.
