There's a lot going on around The Nationals and the easiest way to stay in touch is by registering your email address. We send weekly roundups of all our activity as well as special briefings for important events and policy announcements.

Wednesday is the deadline for entering your submissions for Woman of the Year.

Anyone can nominate someone and we all know someone worth nominating. This is a great way to thank members of your community by letting them know you recognise all they are doing.

There are five categories that cover experience, age and contribution and we encourage our members and also our Branches and Electorate Councils to consider nominating someone before the deadline.

They may not win the award but knowing that others appreciate them is a reward in itself.


  • The Premier’s Award recognises NSW women who have excelled in their chosen career, field or passion. These women are exceptional achievers who have made a significant contribution to NSW and whose accomplishments make them a strong role model for other women.
  • Rex Airlines Regional Woman of the Year Award celebrates women from regional NSW who have made significant achievements in areas that are important to regional or rural communities.
  • The A.H. Beard Community Hero Award celebrates heroes and/or volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to the community. These women are positive role models who inspire others to contribute to the community too.
  • Harvey Norman’s Young Woman of the Year Award celebrates women aged 18 to 30 years who have excelled in their career or made a significant contribution to their community.
  • NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year Award awarded by the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, this award is specifically for an Aboriginal woman who has promoted reconciliation and cohesion by improving relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This could include Aboriginal women working in any sector or field such as business, government, community or academia.
