Australia Day Awards 2021

The legacy of one of Australia’s greatest environmental and social justice activists will live on, through an award dedicated in his name.

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has honoured the late Jack Mundey by naming a new category in its annual Australia Day Awards.

Mayor Khal Asfour said Mundey died at the age of 90 earlier this year. He grew up in the Atherton Tablelands in Queensland and came to Sydney to play for Parramatta Rugby Leagues Club while earning a living as builder’s labourer.

Mundey then joined the union and from there began a life of struggle for justice, a fair go and environmental protection.

“He lived in Croydon Park for more than 40 years and, as one of our community, has been rightly honoured for all he has given and achieved,” Mayor Asfour said.

“His efforts have been recognised worldwide. Including a meeting with Petra Kelly from Germany and Green Bans inspiring the establishment Greens parties all over the world.

“As a result, The Rocks, Centennial Park, Victoria Street, Kings Cross, the Queen Victoria Building and Kelly’s Bush (the last portion of foreshore bush on the Parramatta River) were saved.”

Mayor Khal Asfour said there was never been a more important year, than 2020, to nominate your local hero for one of the City’s Australia Day Awards.

“There are countless selfless local heroes, who don’t seek recognition or fame, but do deserve our gratitude and thanks,” Mayor Asfour said.

“People from all walks of life who do what they do out of a commitment to the community and love for others.

“Carers of the elderly and the disabled, volunteers, community leaders, mentors and role models.

People who make a real difference in your life, or the life of others.

“It’s your chance to acknowledge and recognise them and I encourage you all to make the effort and nominate those that are deserving.”

Nominations are now open in five categories:

  • Citizen of the Year;
  • Young Citizen of the Year;
  • Volunteer of the Year;
  • Organisation of the Year; and
  • Jack Mundey Environment and Heritage Award (NEW).


The awards will be announced at the Australia Day Ceremony, where a group of residents will also proudly become Australian Citizens. Nominations close 5pm Monday 30 November. For more information, and to nominate your local hero, call 9707 9535 or visit cb.city/australiadayawards
