The Order of Australia is the principal and most prestigious means of recognising outstanding members of the community at a national level.  The Order of Australia was established in 1975 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Philosophy underlying the Order of Australia

The purpose of the Order of Australia is to recognise, by national honour, those who have made outstanding contributions that benefit their communities, and ultimately our country.

The second purpose of the Order of Australia is that it serves to define, encourage and reinforce community standards, national aspirations and ideals by acknowledging actions and achievement and thereby identifying role models at all levels and in all spheres of the community.

While endeavour may have been sustained over many years, in essence, membership of the Order of Australia is not an award for long service but for outstanding service.
