The NSW Branch of the Order of Australia Association was officially formed on 22 July 1980.
Since then, over 70 members have served on the Branch Committee, giving most generously of their time to arrange functions, represent the Association in an official capacity, attend investitures, travel to regional functions and act as Directors on the National Association Committee.
Project undertaken by the Branch include:
- The erecting of the Flagpole at Darling Harbour for the 1988 Bi-centenary.
- Gaining donations towards the sculpting of a statue of Queen Elizabeth II for the new Parliament House in Canberra.
One of the main aims of each Branch of The Order of Australia Association is to raise awareness about The Order of Australia and the process through which awards are granted. The Branch Office regularly distributes information to those who are seeking to submit a nomination.
