What a year for Kate and Tick
What a year it’s been for Kate and Tick as Australia’s Local Hero for 2019! There’s been a lot of activity as part of the honour, including:
- Participating in a special Australia Day event on Sydney Harbour.
- Attending many citizenship ceremonies, especially in the Northern Territory, and a large celebration in Canberra on National Citizenship Day.
- Being re-acquainted with the Governor-General in Darwin and meeting the Director of the Department of Home Affairs.
- Kate travelling through Tasmania as part of an Australian Day Tour of Honour.
- Being guest speakers and attending many events including a conference in Queensland, a National Australia Day Council function in Sydney, an Oz Forum in Katherine, the 2020 Northern Territory Australian of the Year Awards in Alice Springs and the National Australian of the Year Conference.
- Doing countless radio, newspaper and magazine interviews, plus TV appearances.
Kate and Tick have done all of this while also working full time and focusing every spare moment on helping grow #DollysDream. 💙
