A diverse group of Australians has been honored in this year’s King’s Birthday honours list, with individuals from various fields recognized for their exceptional contributions to society.

The honours list, consisting of 737 recipients, includes familiar names such as Sister Jane Keogh, a dedicated refugee advocate, as well as high-profile figures like multimillionaire Sarina Russo and Asio chief Mike Burgess.

Sister Jane Keogh, known for her tireless advocacy for refugees, expressed both the challenges and rewards of her work over the years, emphasizing the importance of restoring belief in human rights.

Sarina Russo, often referred to as ‘Australia’s job queen’, was recognized for her significant service to business, vocational education, and the community.

Among the notable recipients were former state premiers Dan Andrews and Mark McGowan, who became household names during the Covid-19 pandemic. The late Simon Crean was also posthumously awarded for his leadership.

This year marks the last honours list announced by Governor-General David Hurley, who highlighted the incredible impact of the recipients’ efforts in their communities.

The honours list also featured renowned figures like Greg Combet, Glenn McGrath, Hamish Blake, and Jimmy Rees, further showcasing the diversity of achievements.

Western Australian recipients, including individuals like Jillian Skinner, Shelley Hancock, and Peter Senior, were acknowledged across various categories, reflecting the state’s rich talent pool.

As the awards are conferred in upcoming ceremonies, the impact of these outstanding individuals on Australian society will continue to be celebrated and recognized.
