Publishers Description: This book tells the story of truly great Australians who have emerged and shone over the last half century. It invites us to rediscover the lives and service of remarkable individuals, and to ask ourselves what more we can do for our nation. This is an anniversary to be celebrated. In January 2010 psychiatrist Patrick McGorry accepted the Australian of the Year award—the latest in a line of inspiring Australians stretching back fifty years to the award’s first recipient, biologist Sir Frank Burnett. Australians of the Year celebrates this milestone 50th anniversary by taking a close up look at the lives of each recipient and revealing talented and admirable role models Australia can be proud of. Among a fascinating collection of scientists, sportspeople, entertainers, doctors, leaders, soldiers and environmentalists you will meet opera diva Dame Joan Sutherland, war hero Sir Ernest Edward 'Weary' Dunlop and outstanding athlete Catherine Freeman.
