Five Central Queenslanders were among 119 Queenslanders named in the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours List – acknowledged for their outstanding service and inspiring achievements in Queensland, Australia and abroad.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk congratulated the latest recipients, whose wide-ranging contributions stretch from the grass courts of Wimbledon, to the halls of Parliament, and beyond.
“Following Her Majesty The Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee last week, earning a place on this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List will no doubt have extra significance for the 119 Queensland recipients,” the Premier said.
“The latest honourees include dedicated health leaders and public servants, gifted athletes and authors, passionate advocates for veterans and people with a disability, and tireless community volunteers.
“Importantly, all were nominated by members of the public and I’m delighted their service, talent, loyalty and perseverance has been recognised with a place in the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours.”
Twenty three Queenslanders were appointed Members of the Order of Australia (AM).
Fifty one Queenslanders were awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the General Division.
The nomination form for the Order of Australia, as well as a complete list of the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours recipients, is available on the Governor-General’s website at www.gg.gov.au.
