Nominations for the 2019 Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll are officially open.
There are currently 107 outstanding Aboriginal Victorians on the Honour Roll who have made a profound contribution to their community and to Victoria.

The Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll recognises the achievements of Aboriginal Victorians, both past and present, who have made a profound contribution to their community and to Victoria. Inductees have dedicated their lives to helping others and giving back to their community, while fighting for self-determination and equality. Reconciliation Victoria encourages Victorians to become familiar with and share the inspirational stories and achievements of all inductees on the Roll.
We’re proud that the tireless efforts of long time Reconciliation Victoria Council members John Baxter and Vicki Clark have been acknowledged as they were inducted into the Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
