Landcare Award


The Bob Hawke Landcare Award celebrates an individual who has been involved in championing the Landcare ethic and inspiring others to take action on their own property or through a Landcare group. This award acknowledges an individual who has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to caring for the land; champions better practices; and gives their time to share knowledge with others so that they too can prosper.

The award acknowledges the role that former Prime Minister, the Hon. Bob Hawke AC, played in elevating Landcare from a grassroots community initiative to a national movement with strong government support.

The Bob Hawke Landcare Award recipient will be awarded with a prize package to the value of $50,000 for further development of their knowledge and skills in sustainable land management and Landcare. The award recipient will also receive an honorary two year position on the Australian Landcare Council.

To be eligible for the award, nominees must be actively involved in Landcare or sustainable agriculture and be willing to promote the Landcare ethos.

All award nominations will be assessed by an independent advisory panel, including representatives from Australian, state and territory governments, Landcare and the natural resource management community.

Nominations close at midnight (AEDT) on Monday 23, July 2012.
