About the finalists

The Australian of the Year Awards 2016 exhibition pays tribute to the eight extraordinary Australians chosen as the 2016 Australian of the Year finalists. The exhibition features personal objects selected by the finalists that have special significance to them and communicate something special about their lives and experiences.


This exhibition was developed by the National Museum of Australia in collaboration with the National Australia Day Council.
