Best Of The Best Awards

Every 4 years, Waverley Council acknowledges outstanding and sustained contribution to the community through the ‘Local Hero Awards – Best of the Best’. Award winners are recognized through a bronze plaque on the ‘Recognising Our Community Leaders’ walk, on either Bronte or Bondi Beach Promenade.

Local Hero Awards – Best of the Best recipients are community members who have demonstrated exceptional service to the local, national or international community, and whose impact is significant and lasting. They are well respected by their peers and the community, inspirational and positive role models. The caliber of these recipients far exceeds expectations of general community service.

If you know of someone who has been outstanding in contributing to the public good over a long time and whose commitment is worthy recognition, then please nominate them now.
