This year, Emi and Marie were proud to take part in Queensland Australia Day celebrations as two of the state’s forty-five Australia Day ambassadors. On Tuesday, 26 January, Emi and Marie represented the state at Somerset Civic Centre and took part in Somerset Regional Council’s Australia Day breakfast and award ceremony, as a part of Australia’s program, which encourages
Queenslanders to come together and celebrate in such an important national day. The Ambassador Program started in New South Wales in 1990 with only nine Ambassadors and is now delivered in every state and territory throughout Australia. Since its inception in Queensland in 2005, the program has sent over 250 Ambassadors to local Australia Day festivities statewide.
The program sends outstanding, accomplished and inspiring Queenslanders to local Australia Day events across the state, and the Bird’s Nest girls were honoured to be chosen to represent such an influential group of people at the Somerset event – the perfect way to celebrate everything that is great about being Australian.
